The Google Assistant is an extremely useful feature on Android phones that lets you set reminders, control your smart home devices, get news and weather reports, play music, and much more by simply saying “Hey Google” followed by yours Inquiry.
It could soon be much more useful if a new feature that Google is testing in-house is removed from Google’s labs. This new feature is and it was called the Google Assistant Memory discovered by 9to5Google in an outline of the latest version of the Google Assistant app that Google uploaded to its Play Store.
When examining the code of the downloaded app, 9to5Google looked for lines indicating possible functionality in future versions of the app and, where possible, enabled those lines of code to try the feature before the IPO (if ever) goes public ).
Looking at the code in the latest version of the Google Assistant, 9to5Google found references to a new feature called “Storage” and a description of how storage works. According to Google, with Memory you can:
- Save all screen contents in memory: including links to the original source, if available
- Save real content in memory: objects, posters or handwritten notes
- Store thoughts and memories in mind: thoughts, ideas, and things to come back to
- And you can find everything in one place: intelligent search and organization
For example, you can save verbal thoughts, photos from your phone’s camera, screenshots, recipes, URLs and much more. To access these memories, the wizard has a new button “Memory” at the bottom of the screen next to the snapshot icon. Tapping this icon will bring up your storage feed.
According to 9to5Google, memory shows memory as map entries. When you save files from Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and other uploaded drive files, a document preview will also appear on the card. Different contextual information is also displayed on each card, such as: B. “Shipment tracking” or “Cooking time”. There is also an option to pin reminders to the home screen.
It sounds like a really useful feature that the Google Assistant combines with some of the features of Google KeepWe hope that Google’s internal tests will pass internal tests and become a public version of the Google Assistant. We assume that the feature was developed to this extent become Start, perhaps as a unique feature on the upcoming Google Pixel 6which is expected to be published later this year.
