Back in August, the command “Hey, Google, show me my day” was added to quickly launch the final Assistant feed on Android. Google has also previously reviewed a number of other features of the Snapshot Assistant that appear: “Follow the News” and FAB with shortcuts that are now widely available.
“Follow the news” shows your “top 5 stories right now.” This default card is extended to show the carousel. Articles contain large covers, title, publication and the number of hours before it was published. Clicking – now and mercifully – opens a page on a special Chrome tab, not Google̵7;s default solution that has been tested and exited.
Below the list of maps you can flip through is the “Open News” tab – “For You” and “Headlines”. If installed, open the Google News app for more information. As with other tabs, you can turn off News Articles in Google Assistant’s photo settings in the “Recommendations” section. Compared to Google Discover, it offers a much shorter experience that is more suited to the size of the bite.
Meanwhile, the FAB, which was previously demonstrated in late August, is now available. Appearing in the lower right corner with a four-color plus sign, it launches the “Add New” ribbon. Depending on the services connected, most users only see Reminders.
This launches Google Assistant to fill in the details of what you want to be notified about. “Purchases” and “Note” are available to others who do not have their own or third-party set of services and simply use the Assistant for everything. These two elements provide a more integrated experience.
The Assistant Snapshot FAB program appeared this week, while the Google News card is now coming out.
