Not too long ago, Google released its official Gemini app. You can download it now on the Google Play Store and use it for free. Since this is a new app release, people in some regions are complaining that they couldn’t access it. Well, this is changing, as the Gemini app is now available in more regions.
When the app launched, it was available primarily in the US. That’s understandable, seeing as Google is a United States company. Many people complained that it was not available in their region. So, if you don’t live in the US, you’ll just have to play the waiting game until it lands on your device.
Google is still working on distributing this app, so patience is a virtue. There are even people complaining that it wasn’t available on the Pixel Tablet. We’re not sure this is for lack of a tablet-optimized version, as people were able to use the app on their Pixel Fold. So, people with the Pixel Tablet will just have to wait until it eventually reaches them.

The Gemini app is coming to more regions
The Gemini app is making it to more places in the world, and we’re seeing hints of this throughout the internet. On X, a Google employee named Jack Krawczyk posted a progress report detailing some feedback the company got about it. In the post, he mentions that the mobile app is “still rolling out; opening to LATAM, Africa, Asia Pacific, Canada on Monday, Europe ASAP”. So, over the weekend, people in Europe should have been getting access to it.
This is further supported by a post from Lukas Boguth. This user side-loaded the app via the APK on February 9th, but it was not functional then. However, he posted that it’s currently working on his Pixel 7 Pro. Other users across the internet are reporting much the same thing.
As per Krawczyk, the Gemini app is making it to more regions starting today so, if you live somewhere within the list of regions mentioned, be sure to check to see if the Gemini app is available to download. If you don’t see it yet, then you may just want to wait a few days.
