Assistant Snapshot moves forward The legacy of Google Now, although its prominence was reduced compared to the previous feeding. After a couple of alarming changes to Snapshot in the Google app and Assistant, its location may be even less of a priority.
Last week, some Google app users noticed that the “Snapshot” tab between “Explore” and “Search” disappeared on Android. Contacts are left with three or four tabs depending on whether they receive a separate redesign. Moves the “Other” page to the account menu in the upper right corner.
Meanwhile, the latest Google Assistant design released on Pixel phones early august also removed the “Snapshot” corner shortcut that appears after activation.
Therefore, these users are left with only one primary way to access the Snapshot. They need to visit the Discover feed on the left of Pixel Launcher and tap the top left button. It’s not a simple or even visible way to access this feed,”Hey Google, show me my day” voice command is even worse and harder to discover. you could add home screen shortcut early, but once removed, there is no way to undo it.
We’ve only had two reports of Assistant Snapshot disappearing from the Google app, so this could be a bug. However, the removal from the Assistant panel seems more permanent as it has been the final design for the past few weeks.
An alarming trend for a feed that most people are unaware of. To provide a chronological, card-based preview of your program. It’s mostly packed with calendar events, but other entries show nearby restaurants, music/podcast recommendations, bill reminders, and more. The “Snapshot” brand has arrived March 2020 with a major refurbishment and before then it was known as “Updates”.
Google’s plans for the talent are currently unclear, and a clear placement is needed to at least encourage adoption. If these two recent removals are part of a planned change, it’s unclear what positioning would make the Snapshot even more visible.
