Google Assistant Can Now Help You Plan Your Day



Google may have just given you a reason to check Google Assistant every day. This is thanks to its latest innovation, called Visual Snapshot, which is designed to give you an at-a-glance overview of your day ahead. Leaving you to worry about other things.

Google Assistant is a virtual helper, and Google’s answer to Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri. Assistant is one step up from Google Now, and it has evolved massively since it first launched in May 2016. And Google is continuing to add new features…

Putting Your Information to Good Use

Unsurprisingly, Google Assistant is all about information, whether Assistant is answering your questions, updating you on local traffic, or keeping tabs on your appointments. And the new Visual Snapshot collates all of this information into one easy-to-read tab.

Your Visual Snapshot will give you, well, a visual snapshot of your day ahead. On Android all you need to do is tap the new icon in the top, right-hand corner of the screen. On iOS your Visual Snapshot should appear as soon as you open Google Assistant.

Your Visual Snapshot will show you estimated travel times between where you are and where you need to be, your agenda for the day, reminders of appointments, restaurant reservations, any bills due to be paid, packages due to be delivered, and more besides.

Google is promising to add more useful features to Visual Snapshot in the coming months. This includes “an overview of your notes and lists from Google Keep, Any.do, Bring!, Todoist and others” and “personalized recommendations for music and podcasts”.

Helping You Manage Your Busy Schedule

Visual Snapshot is rolling out to Google Assistant on Android and on iOS right now. While it will be available to everyone, you will only be able to get the most out of Visual Snapshot if you already use Google apps to manage your busy schedule.

There is a lot more to Google Assistant than meets the eye, and we’ve previously tried to help you get the most out of the app. So here are some things you didn’t know Google Assistant could do, and some amazing IFTTT applets to supercharge Google Assistant.
