Very soon the Google Assistant will receive a feature that will increase its usefulness.
According to 9to5Google, Google is testing Memory — a feature that technology describes as “a quick and easy way to find everything in one place.”
The Google Assistant Memory can store a wide variety of content, including reminders, ideas, objects, handwritten notes, or anything else on the screen. To save things in ‘Memory’, you will only have to activate it with a voice command.
Among the list of things supported by this feature are websites, books, articles, shipments, screenshots, and more. ‘Memory’ can store any contact, event, or reminder, as well as flights or hotel reservations.
As expected, this feature will integrate with Google applications such as Docs, Sheets, Jamboard, Sites, and files that can be previewed in Google Drive.
The Google Assistant Memory will have access in the bottom bar next to Snapshot, where we can review what we save. The wizard will organize them chronologically into two sections: memories for today and those that you previously stored.
Perhaps most importantly, the reminders will be stored directly in ‘Memory.’ The interface of this option will be displayed in the form of cards, and it will be possible to insert a shortcut on your home screen through a widget.
For now, the Google Assistant Memory is in a testing phase with company employees. It is unknown when it will be offered to end-users or if this will materialize.
