Link: Google says Gemini Nano is now built into Chrome on desktop, with plans to use it to power features like the existing "help me write" tool (Frederic Lardinois/TechCrunch)

Google announced that it is building Gemini Nano, the smallest of its AI models, directly into the Chrome desktop client, starting with Chrome 126. This, the company says, will enable developers to use the on-device model to power their own AI features. Google itself plans to use this new capability to power features like the existing “help me write” tool from Workspace Lab in Gmail, for example. The company says it’s the recent work on WebGPU and WASM support in Chrome that enables these models to run at a reasonable speed on a wide set of hardware. #
