5 ways that Gemini can supercharge your ideas.
Kickstart your productivity and creativity, find info, and so much more with Gemini, your built-in AI assistant for Pixel.

Whether we’re planning our next vacation or catching up on email, we can all get help from Gemini.

It’s the AI assistant from Google that comes with your Google Pixel. Chat to brainstorm ideas and get help with everyday tasks without having to jump through multiple apps. 

Here are 5 ways to supercharge your productivity and creativity with Gemini on Pixel.

1 Quickly sift through your Google apps

So much of our life is on our phones. But the information we need isn’t always in the same place. Gemini can sift through Google apps like Gmail, Drive, and Maps to help get you what you need, when you need it. All you have to do is ask.

Say you’re headed to the airport but can’t find the confirmation code for your flight. Chat with Gemini by saying, “Hey Google, give me the confirmation code for my upcoming flight to Miami. Check @Gmail.”

2 Get answers quickly

Sometimes the info we need isn’t in our apps – and Gemini can help with that, too. 

Forget CliffsNotes. If your middle schooler needs help understanding Shakespeare or applying the Pythagorean Theorem, Gemini can spark discussion, summarize key themes, and break down complex concepts.

Or let’s say you notice a new piece of equipment at the gym. Snap a photo and attach it in your Gemini app. Then ask Gemini what muscles the machine works and how to use it safely.

Maybe you’re at a dinner party and see a beautiful charcuterie board. Google Pixel can help you recreate it for a party of your own. Take a photo of the board with your Pixel and ask Gemini to show you what you need to arrange it, including the cheeses, crackers, and nuts to buy, and how to lay out everything in a beautiful tableau. Want to make your creation gluten-free? Gemini can give suggestions about what to include.

3 Learn more about what’s on your screen

You never know what will spark your next great idea or new favorite product. Sometimes it’s as simple as what you see on your screen.

Let’s say you see a photo of an interesting landmark online. Just say, “Hey Google, where is this place? Is it somewhere you would recommend visiting during the summer?” and Gemini will tell you all about it.

Or maybe you’re browsing a skincare website and trying to decide what to buy. Your Pixel can help you choose which product is better for sensitive skin. Just hold down the power button to activate Gemini, your AI assistant on your screen.

4 Brainstorm ideas and kickstart your creative process

Whether you’re planning activities with your kids, a date night with your spouse, or a weekend getaway with friends, Gemini can help get you started. 

Looking for a good sushi restaurant that’s open this Friday at 8 PM? Ask Gemini to find it – and even suggest a place for dessert within walking distance.

Heading to Miami for the weekend? Ask Gemini to create lists of places to check out, including museums, historical sites, and great new restaurants. Customize your results by giving Gemini a simple prompt like:

• My family and I are going to Miami for Labor Day. My son loves art and my husband really wants fresh seafood. Can you pull my flight and hotel info from Gmail and help me plan the weekend?

Looking for some creative ways to do arts and crafts with your kids? Using your Google Pixel, ask Gemini what materials you have – like stickers, glue, construction paper, and glitter – and Gemini can help get you going.

5 Recap your day

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was an easy way to summarize your out-of-control inbox? Gemini can help. Chat with Gemini to summarize unread emails from your kids’ school – and get a digestible summary of the top results.

Whatever your next project may be, from brainstorming about your honeymoon to creating a plan for hosting Thanksgiving, Gemini can help get you started.
