It's now available on the app for both Android and iOS devices in all languages supported by the Google Assistant app. All Android users capable of using Google Now, that is to say.

When you open the app now, you will see travel times which will be based on your appointments, location, and traffic - all standard elements that Assistant users have come to expect.

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

"We'll continue to add more useful features to your snapshot over time-for example, an overview of your notes and lists from Google Keep,, Bring!, Todoist and others; a new discovery section to help you find activities nearby; reminders on where you parked; personalized recommendations for music and podcasts; and much more", he wrote.

Assistant will also send notifications to your phone for upcoming events and reminders, and even alert you if your flight has been delayed. You could find out how long your commute is, see where your packages are, and see what's on your calendar, all before you even ask for it. Google has so much personal information on you, may as well make use of it, right?

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

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.

Amazon's smart speaker is available in two versions - the full sized $180 (£145) Echo shown here, and a smaller, $50 (£40) version called the Echo Dot. The new UI includes proactive suggestions and personalized information much like Google Now back in the day. The search giant will also integrate parking locations to Assistant, so you can remember where you parked your auto, and will also add personalized recommendations for music and podcasts.
