Google Assistant prepares “Memory,” a new section for saving ideas, articles, images, and more… It has been leaked that Google is preparing a very important update for its Assistant. A new section has come to light that will make the Google Assistant app much more complete.
Reminders are one of the key features of any assistant and now Google Assistant is preparing a sort of merger of reminders, notes, and collections in the future ‘Memory’ section. Google Assistant prepares “Memory,” a new section for saving ideas, articles, images, and more.
This is what Google Assistant’s ‘Memory’ will look like
So far the Google Assistant offers two sections: The commands to interact by voice or keyboard with the Assistant and the ‘Day view’ section with notifications, events, and reminders. Well, ‘Memory’ will be the third differentiated section and would arrive to enhance the reminders.
9to5Google has managed to activate this new section still under development to show us the first details and screenshots. The splash screen of this new section informs that with ‘Memory’ you will be able to:
- Save screen content: Including links to the source when available.
- Save things from the real world: Objects, posters, or handwritten notes.
- Save thoughts and reminders: Thoughts, ideas, and things.
- And find it all in one place again: Smart search and organization.
According to the leak, Google Assistant will be able to save articles, books, contacts, events, flights, hotels, images, movies, music, notes, photos, places, playlists, products, recipes, reminders, restaurants, screenshots, shipments, TV shows, videos, and websites. Virtually anything you see on the screen can be turned into a reminder or note for later viewing.
The Google Assistant will automatically organize the saved items by themes, as well as allowing us to create our themes. Its intelligent search engine will also allow us to quickly find our reminders or notes. Also, it has a recycled garbage can to recover deleted “memories”.
It is unknown when Google will officially launch this new feature. At the moment it is in the internal testing phase, so only Google employees have official access to the new ‘Memory’.
