  • Google Assistant’s new visual snapshot will give you a rundown of your entire day

Now, when you open the Assistant app on your phone, it will show a "visual overview of your day" including how long it'll take to get to work, any bills that are due, meetings you're scheduled to attend, and more, Google announced Tuesday. That went on for a while - inside the most powerful part of Android, Google Now, all the personal information went, for all Android users.

Your overviews are updated throughout the day, and you can check for updates by tapping the new icon located in the top right corner of Assistant, which looks like an empty blue inbox.

The update is already rolling out and you can check if you've received if you spot a new icon that looks like an envelope screaming, in Assistant.

Google Assistant’s new visual snapshot will give you a rundown of your entire day
Google Assistant gets more helpful

Google Assistant has become one of the leading digital assistants out there, but there's always room for improvement.

Back in the day, Google Now was all the rage as it was a one-stop solution for custom tailored, account-specific stuff and useful for keeping track of various deadlines or ongoing details. Initially launched as a search feature that also allowed you to do things like make quick phone calls, send text messages, set reminders and more, the new features provide curated information based on the time of day, location and your recent interactions with the Assistant. This includes traffic, upcoming calendar events, bill notifications, package alerts, and travel information like flights, hotel and restaurant reservations. Google have stated that they will be adding more features to this daily snapshot over time such as Google Keep lists, Todoist, and others. The virtual assistant's latest feature, a visual snapshot, helps you stay on top of your day.

Once updated, open Google Assistant and behold! It would not be surprising to find other features like notes, Podcasts, Music recommendations, and other oddities appearing here in the future, too.
