The users have a direct chat with Gemini, which cannot be integrated into other chats, as Assistant in Google Allo earlier. There is assistance for Gemini Extensions, including Workspace (@Gmail, etc.), @Youtube, and @GoogleMaps. However, YouTube Music is not visible to Gemini in Google Messages.

The users can give feedback by reacting to the provided response with a thumbs-up or other emoji, along with the accessibility to star and forward options.
