Google is working on a new feature for this Assistant on Android Known as “memory” which, according to the latest APAC, can transform it into an effective organizer. 9to5 Google. The idea is that you can save screen content, images, reminders, ideas and many more in one place, then find it again through a smart search function.
Depending on the application screen, you can save items to memory using the verbal Google Assistant command or use a home screen shortcut. This includes articles, books, contacts, events, flights, hotels, images, movies, music, notes, photos, places, playlists, products, recipes, reminders, restaurants, screenshots, shipments, TV shows, videos and websites. It will also save screenshots, URLs, location and other information that is happening in the context.
Once you’ve saved the items, you’ll be able to see them in a memory feed next to the current Snapshot menu. It will appear in reverse chronological order as cards labeled “Old Memory” and “Today”. For some Google Drive items such as docs or sheets, the card looks previewed. Depending on what you’ve saved, Google lets you do “search plane status,” “watch trailer,” “cooking time,” “run track” and more. If you create reminders, they are also stored in memory.
That being said, Memory View is a supercharged, freeform voice reminder application with advanced search capabilities that can help keep users more integrated. At the moment, however, it is still being tested – so it is not yet clear when it will be released to the public.
