It seems that Google is not 100% confident that its new chatbot will make it to market. Gemini still seems to "choke" on queries in languages other than English.

The search giant, Google, faces a serious existential threat from artificial intelligence (AI) and language model-based chatbots, with OpenAI’s ChatGPT being one of the leaders in this trend for 2023. In response, Google launched its own chatbot named Bard this year. However, this launch has not been without complications, as it has faced criticism regarding the accuracy of its responses.
Alphabet CEO, Sundar Pichai, chose to cancel a series of launch events initially planned in California, New York, and Washington for Google’s chatbot Gemini. The reason behind this decision lies in the unreliability of Gemini in “specific queries that were not in English.” It seems that Google is taking a more cautious approach this time, quietly rescheduling the introduction of Gemini for early 2024.
AI remains the cornerstone of Google’s strategy
Although Google had not made any public announcement about the launch of Gemini, it would have been significant for the company and would have offered the opportunity to conclude 2023 prominently. Furthermore, it would have sent a clear signal that Google is ready to compete with OpenAI in the generative AI field, especially as the latter is now considered a leader in this field.
Google’s Gemini is envisioned as a multimodal generative AI chatbot, intended to understand and process various types of data and generate responses in the desired format. It is supposed to be more powerful than its rival, ChatGPT, and was expected to offer additional capabilities such as planning and problem-solving, areas where ChatGPT shows limitations.
Although the launch of Gemini would have been a significant step for Google, the company has opted for a cautious stance, delaying the release to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of the chatbot in response to previous criticisms of Bard.
