- Private codebases (Preview): Allows enterprises to customize Gemini Code Assist using their private codebases and knowledge sources for more tailored assistance
- Full codebase awareness (Preview): Capable of performing large-scale changes across entire codebases, including adding new features, updating dependencies, and conducting comprehensive code reviews
- Automated tasks: Offers quick shortcuts to automate frequent developer tasks, minimizing context switching and enhancing user experience
- Proactive suggestions: Provides proactive suggestions for code improvements and optimizations
- Enterprise security: Offers single-tenancy, enterprise access control, and auditable access history to ensure data privacy and security
- Compliance: Complies with industry standards and certifications such as SOC 1/2/3, ISO/IEC 27001, 27017, 27018, and 27701

How it works:
Gemini Code Assist integrates into the developer's workflow through IDE plugins. After setting up Gemini Code Assist in an IDE like Visual Studio Code or JetBrains, developers can interact with it using natural language prompts or by selecting code snippets for assistance. The tool provides real-time code completions, generates code based on comments, and offers detailed explanations and suggestions through a chat interface.

Integrations:
- Google Cloud Platform: Integration with services like Cloud Workstations, Cloud Shell Editor, and Apigee API Management
- IDEs: Available as plugins for Visual Studio Code, JetBrains IDEs (IntelliJ, PyCharm, GoLand, WebStorm), and more
- APIs: Supports integration with Google APIs and other third-party services for enhanced functionality

Use of AI:
Gemini Code Assist leverages generative AI to provide intelligent code assistance, code generation, and natural language chat capabilities. It uses AI to understand code context, generate relevant suggestions, and provide detailed explanations and guidance to developers.

AI foundation model:
Gemini Code Assist is built on Google's Gemini models, which are fine-tuned with billions of lines of open-source code, security data, and Google Cloud-specific content. The tool uses the Gemini 1.5 Pro model, which offers a one-million-token large context window, enabling it to handle extensive code analysis and provide detailed suggestions.

How to access:
Gemini Code Assist is available as a plugin for various IDEs and as part of Google Cloud services. It is suitable for professional developers, enterprise teams, and beginner developers who want to enhance their productivity and receive intelligent coding assistance.
