Early this year, Google launched its own AI tool, Bard, to compete with ChatGPT. Later, Google renamed Bard to Gemini, and it’s available for both desktop & mobile users.

After a few months, Google also introduced extensions that add more features to the AI Chatbot. At first, Google Gemini only had five extensions, but now it has a new one named YouTube Music.
