Elon Musk hit out at Google over the text-to-image generation feature of its Gemini AI chatbot. Alphabet's Google said that it is pausing Gemini's image generation of people.

Google started image generation through its Gemini AI models earlier this month. Although users have flagged that the model returns historical images which are sometimes inaccurate.

Google rolled out paid subscription plans in Gemini which users could choose for better reasoning capabilities from the AI model.

Jack Krawczyk, Senior Director of Product for Gemini at Google, said, “Historical contexts have more nuance to them and we will further tune to accommodate that.”
