Google Bans Election Queries on Gemini AI 

Most the people search on Google about elections for political issues but Google latest update clearly mentioned that they are at neutral state.

Google this big step make a big impact on the elections google say they stopped the separating of fake news during the election time.

Gemini AI is Google chat bot but now you can’t ask anything about elections and political issues.

Why Google Did This

Potential for Misinformation: Elections are sensitive periods but chatbots did not provide the correct information some times.

Maintaining Neutrality: It’s important for a large tech company like Google to maintain a position of neutrality during elections, especially in a politically charged environment. Restricting Gemini’s responses on these topics helps avoid accusations of bias.

Still Evolving Technology: Large language models like Gemini are remarkable, but their understanding of complex topics like elections isn’t fully developed.

How the Restrictions Work

Globally Implemented: Google has applied these restrictions basically on India and those Countries where election will be held.

Preset Messages: If you ask Gemini about political parties, candidates, or election-adjacent topics, you’ll likely get a message like “I’m still learning how to answer this question. In the meantime, try Google Search.”

Typo Workarounds (Initially): There were some initial reports that users could get around restrictions with typos and creative phrasing, but Google likely addresses these loopholes quickly.
