Google Assistant adds a snapshot of your daily agenda

When you open the app now, you will see travel times which will be based on your appointments, location, and traffic - all standard elements that Assistant users have come to expect. The new UI includes proactive suggestions and personalized information much like Google Now back in the day. You can get notifications for upcoming bills, packages, even an alert that your flight has been delayed-your Google Assistant will keep track so you don't have to.

That little icon in Google Assistant may not look like much, but it heralds a return to form for Google.

The feature is rolling out over the next week, according to Google, and will show you a feed of what your day is going to look like. All Android users capable of using Google Now, that is to say. The feature will be available on both iOS and Android devices in all supported languages.

Google Assistant will now pull together curated personal information, like flight times, restaurant reservations, scheduled meetings, expected package deliveries, reminders and more, and lay them out in a single overview you can scroll through.

Google will continue to add content to this new snapshot, too, including tips for upcoming activities you might enjoy, lists from Google Keep, recommendations based on your listening history for podcasts and music, and an overview of your notes. The latest access to this newly expanded Visual Snapshot should be ready to roll.

The Google Assistant can also send proactive notifications on your phone to remind you of important upcoming events.

Google Assistant may well be the best digital assistant around but that hasn't stopped Google from making changes to improve it over time.

For example, if you ask Google Assistant what the weather is, you don't have to use the wake word if you want to know if it will rain after she replies.
