Now the unfunniest guy you know can be even less funny in the group chat.

At Google I/O on Tuesday, Google showed off what felt like dozens of new things you can do with its in-house Gemini AI, but one of them stood out more than the others. In Google Messages on Android devices, users will be able to bring up the Gemini overlay and create AI-generated meme response images to drag and drop into conversations.

Google said this will roll out “over the next few months” in a blog post.

There isn’t much to say about this, really. If you want to post a reaction image, but you’re somehow not creative enough to just use one of the thousands of existing (and already funny) reaction images online, this is now a thing you can do.

Will your friends in the group chat enjoy it? Probably not, but that’s not my problem.
