Google launches Gemini in Android Studio to provide coding help

Google continues to roll out Gemini into different products, and today the company announced that Android Studio’s bots will be upgraded with Gemini Pro.

In May 2023, during the Google IO developer event, the company debuted Studio Bot powered by the PaLM-2 base model. The company is rolling out Gemini’s Jellyfish version of Android Studio in more than 180 countries.

In February, Google also updated the basic model of the Bard chatbot from PaLM-2 to Gemini Pro.

Just like the Studio Bot, the new Gemini bot lives in an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) where developers can ask coding-related questions.

The company says developers should notice improvements in the quality of answers in code completion, debugging, finding relevant resources and writing documentation.

Google says that for privacy reasons, users must log in and explicitly allow Gemini to use it. Additionally, the chatbot’s responses depend primarily on the conversation history and context provided by the developer.

The company says users can easily access the Gemini API starter template through Android Studio to add AI-driven generation capabilities to their apps.

Google is determined to compete with tools like GitHub Copilot across its different developer-facing products. Last year, it launched the PaLM-2-based Codey assistant to answer questions about programming and Google Cloud services.
