This overview will be updated throughout the day - Android users can access the updates via a new icon that resembles an empty box located at the top right corner of the Assistant app, while iOS users will be shown regular updates as soon as you open the app itself.

Earlier this year, the firm launched a continuous conversations feature that allows users to keep chatting with the digital assistant without having to use the wake words "Hey Google" every time.

"Travel times are front and center, so you know when to hit the road whether you're getting ready for work, a lunch meeting, or heading home for the night", Google Assistant Product Manager Deniz Binay wrote in a blog post. The new visual approach is within the Google Assistant app, and right when you open it up you'll see personalized info based on your location, the time of day, and your more recent interactions with Assistant.

You can even receive proactive notifications on your phone to remind you of important upcoming events via the Google Assistant.

Google will continue to add content to this new snapshot, too, including tips for upcoming activities you might enjoy, lists from Google Keep, recommendations based on your listening history for podcasts and music, and an overview of your notes.

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.

In the future, the feature will offer even more information. You can get notifications for upcoming bills, packages, even an alert that your flight has been delayed. Google Assistant can help. The search giant will also integrate parking locations to Assistant, so you can remember where you parked your vehicle, and will also add personalized recommendations for music and podcasts.
