The idea of the memory feature is that you can save screen content, images, reminders, ideas and more in one place, and then find them again through the smart search function.
According to the information, you can store items in the memory feature by using a voice command for Google Assistant or using the Home screen shortcut.
This includes articles, books, contacts, events, flights, hotels, photos, movies, music, notes, photos, places, playlists, products, recipes, reminders, restaurants, screenshots, shipments, TV shows, videos, and websites.
It also saves screen shots, URLs, location, and other information that occurs in context.
Once the items are saved, you will be able to see them in the memory feed next to the current Snapshot feed menu. They appear in reverse chronological order as cards with the title Oldest Memories and Today.
For some Google Drive items, such as documents or spreadsheets, the card displays a preview.
Depending on what you’ve stored, Google lets you do things like: search for flight status, watch the trailer, cook time, track the shipment, and more, and if you create any reminders, they’re also saved in memory.
The memory feature looks like a voice reminder app with advanced search capability that can help users stay better organized.
The feature is still being tested, as Google is currently testing it with employees. So there is no information yet on when it will be released to the public or even if it will be released to the public.
The first release of the Google Assistant for phones focused on voice commands until in 2018 Google added visual elements inspired by the Smart Display, such as on-screen controls.
And last year, a Snapshot feed was added to showcase personalized recommendations and upcoming events.
Google generally wants the assistant to be more suitable for the phone and take advantage of it, and the upcoming memory feature is the most important example of this goal so far.
