Google Assistant Snapshot Picks Up Sweet New Features

Google Assistant app now uses your searches to make personalized recommendations Google Assistant’s Snapshot feature now shows more reminders and recommendations

In a surprise announcement, Google revealed today a host of new features that will come to Snapshot on Android and iOS devices.

As always, your Snapshot feed will dynamically change throughout the day based on what time it is and your interactions with Assistant. Well, starting today, Google is making it easier to access Snapshot - you just need to say " Hey Google, show me my day".

Google suggests extra capabilities for Snapshot are coming, far too, so we will hold an eye out for any new assessments. But it will roll out to additional languages in the coming months.

Recommendations are now tailored to the things you like - ie. what you have searched for in the past - such as recipes, podcasts and nearby restaurants that deliver. The company in 2018 had first introduced Google Assistant Snapshot as a way for mobile users to stay on top of their day, by showing timely information like appointments, reminders, commute times, stocks, packages in transit, and more. For example, in the morning you will see a card about your commute, weather, to-dos and top headlines. If you want Google Assistant to remind you of upcoming bills, flights, or event updates. Previously, Snapshot appeared only by activating Google Assistant or by tapping the icon on the bottom left corner.

In addition, Google will now let you say "Hey Google, show me my day" to view your Snapshot. Tapping on a notification will direct you to the related Snapshot card and you'll be offered multiple options like calling or texting. Google is also saying that the feature will be rolled out for users who have other default languages for their assistants.

Finally, you should start seeing notifications from the Assistant with information about Snapshot items.

The update is rolling out to the Google Assistant app on iOS and Android.
