The Google Assistant does a lot of things, including telling you information it thinks you need at any given time. One example is giving you traffic updates just before the time you usually drive home from work. But it doesn’t usually ask you to do things. But it looks like it will start doing so in a bit.
Android Police reports that the Google Assistant will give you notifications that ask if you want to trigger actions you usually do at a certain time. It’s similar to the traffic notification example above, just with the need for your input as an extra element.
You can either tap on the notification itself to have the Google Assistant carry out the action, or expand it to reveal two options. The first is “Do it now”, which does the same thing as just tapping on the notification itself. The second is “Don’t suggest this” which prevents Google Assistant from bringing this particular action up again.
Google is reportedly still testing this feature. But there’s no hint on if it’s a widespread one, or just limited to a small number of users. The number of commands being tested beyond this example is also not known as of now. But even in the event of a wider rollout, it remains to be seen if this feature will see wide use beyond by those heavily invested into smart home systems.
