As Android customers, now we have a couple of methods of saving data for later down the street, relying on how we have to entry that data. For instance, if I’ve an thought for a track, I’d toss that into Google Preserve and entry it for modifying each time I need. I wouldn’t inform the track thought to Google Assistant, anticipating it to recollect it for me. Nevertheless, I might ask Assistant to remind me to name my mother later, as a substitute of placing that data in Google Preserve. Extra plainly, several types of data require totally different companies to maintain all of it so as. Properly, in response to a brand new experimental app/service being labored on by Google, we might quickly see a single place to retailer just about all the pieces on Android.
Known as Reminiscence (Google Assistant Reminiscence, to be actual) and being fed to Google staff just for now, this new experimental characteristic is like a number of apps and companies crammed into one. Based on the setup course of for Reminiscence, noticed and detailed by 9to5Google, customers can do the next:
- Save any display screen content material to Reminiscence: Together with hyperlinks to the unique supply when accessible
- Save real-world stuff to Reminiscence: Objects, posters, or handwritten notes
- Save ideas and reminders to Reminiscence: Ideas, concepts, and stuff to get again to
- And discover all of it once more, in a single place: Sensible search and group
You possibly can primarily retailer something and all the pieces in Reminiscence, then entry that by way of a built-in search perform. You possibly can retailer occasions, recipes, reminders, exhibits, web sites, and all the pieces else. And never solely does Reminiscence wish to save the particular factor, it needs the context, too. For instance, recollections can apparently embrace screenshots, URLs, in addition to areas.
We would nonetheless be a methods from seeing Reminiscence make its method to daily Android customers, but it surely appears to be coming and Google is actually investing in it. Does this imply Google Preserve or issues like that would go away? We don’t know but, and whereas that is nonetheless within the experimental section, we’re unlikely to know for positive.
Does Reminiscence sound intriguing to you?
