In an APK teardown of Google Assistant performed by 9to5Google spotted a new feature called “Memory”. It will allow you to save any content that you prefer to a dedicated feed that can be viewed later. According to Google it is an “easy, quick way to save and find everything in one place”.
Using this new feature you can save information verbally and the Google Assistant will save it based on contextual cases. The information that it can save include, articles, books, contacts, events, flights, hotels, images, movies, music, notes, photos, places, playlists, products, recipes, reminders, restaurants, screenshots, shipments, TV shows, videos, and websites.
The new Memory feed will reside alongside the current Snapshot feed. It will display information categorised as “Today” and “Older memories” as card entries. In addition, there will be specific cards for Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, Jamboard, and Drive files. For instance, you can save recipes and it will be shown as “Cooking time”.
One slight change is that the Google Assistant reminders will be saved to Assistant Memory. You can label these as “Important” or “Read Later”. In the screenshot, the Assisstant Memory UI has just three buttons which are Snapshot, Assistant voice command, and Memory. According to the source, the Collection Tab will be replaced by Memory. At present this feature is being tested internally among Google employees and we might see a public rollout in the near future. \
