Google is working on a new feature for Assistant on Android called “Memory” that can turn it into a convenient organizer, according to a recent APK discovered by 9to5Google. The idea is that you can store screen content, photos, reminders, ideas and more in one place, and then find it again through a smart search function.
According to the app screens, you can store items in memory using a verbal Google Assistant command or use a shortcut on the home screen. These include articles, books, contacts, events, flights, hotels, photos, movies, music, notes, photos, locations, playlists, products, recipes, reminders, restaurants, screenshots, shipments, TV shows, videos, and websites. It will also save screenshots, URLs, location and other information that happens in context.
Once you have saved items, you will be able to see them in a memory feed located next to the current Snapshot menu. It will appear in reverse chronological order as briefly labeled “Older Memories”
All in all, Memory looks like a supercharged, freeform voice reminder app with advanced search capabilities that can help users stay better organized. From now on, however, it is still under testing – so there is no word yet on when or if it will be launched to the public.
