  • Supported Device (Pixel 6 or later, specific Samsung models)
  • Google Messages Beta Tester status
  • RCS chats turned on
  • A personal Google Account (not managed by Family Link or Workspace)
  • Device language set to English (worldwide) or French (Canada only)

How to Get Started with Gemini in Messages

  1. Open Google Messages.
  2. Look for the chat with Gemini or tap “Start chat -> Gemini”.
  3. Follow any first-time instructions.
  4. Type your question or request into the chat.

Things to Try

  • “Suggest a manageable 3-course vegetarian dinner menu.”
  • “Give me conversation starters for a social event where I don’t know many people.”

Remember, Gemini in Messages isn’t end-to-end encrypted. Google is still actively developing this feature, so expect continuous improvement.
