Google's Gemini Code Assist, unveiled at the Cloud Next conference, is an AI-driven tool designed to enhance coding efficiency by providing code completions, generating functions, unit tests, and aiding in debugging and documentation. It operates on Gemini 1.5 Pro with a 1-million context window, surpassing competitors like GitHub Copilot.

Using Gemini Code Assist

2. Chat with Gemini: Click the Gemini icon in the Activity Bar to open the chat panel. You can ask Gemini to explain code, generate unit tests, or debug by typing queries or selecting code segments.

3. Additional Features: Use the Command Palette (Ctrl + Shift + P or Cmd + Shift + P on Mac) to access Gemini's functions like code explanation, code generation, and unit tests.


Gemini Code Assist, with its advanced context window and AI capabilities, promises to be a powerful tool for developers. It aims to streamline coding tasks, improve productivity, and provide robust support for various programming languages.
