Step 1: Type @ in the desktop address bar and select Chat with Gemini or simply type @gemini

Step 2: Write your prompt after selecting Gemini from the address bar

Step 3: Get your response on in a new chat without having to first open the website

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Google shared a video guide to access the new feature, which is embedded below:

The Gemini app is available globally via Google Play Store for Android. It is also available as an opt-in via Google Assistant, allowing users to replace their Assistant with Gemini. The chatbot is available through the Google Search app on iOS with a switch toggle on top.

Additionally, Google is expanding Gemini’s extension feature, allowing users of all languages around the world access data from first-party apps, including Google Flights, Google Hotels, Google Maps, Google Workspace (Gmail, Drive, Docs), and YouTube.
