Google announces Assistant integration with Keep to-dos and lists, for the fifth time (Update: Rolling out)

Google Assistant’s skill to handle lists has been… lower than superb. When Assistant first went reside in 2016, it might add objects to a procuring checklist, which then appeared in Google Preserve. That was a pleasant begin, however then Google determined to maneuver the procuring checklist to the Dwelling app with integration for Google Specific (now Google Procuring). In the end, Assistant is lastly receiving first-class assist for notes and lists… perhaps. Fingers crossed.

Google first introduced in mid-2018 that integration with Google Preserve, Any.do, and different providers was within the works for Assistant. Then a Google worker reaffirmed in October 2018 that the function was nonetheless in improvement, and a weblog put up from the next month simply mentioned “quickly.” Google once more mentioned to-dos and checklist administration was coming in a January weblog put up, however that part was later deleted. That makes this the fifth time Google has introduced this performance.

Google did not restrict the brand new checklist/word administration function to its personal Preserve app, both — it additionally works with Any.do, AnyList, and Convey. Identical to with music and video providers, you possibly can add accounts and select your default from the Google Assistant settings (Assistant settings > Providers > Notes & Lists). Apparently, assist for Todoist was talked about in earlier bulletins, however is now lacking.

This is hoping extra providers are added sooner or later, like Evernote and OneNote. This performance ought to begin rolling out at this time, so it is perhaps a short while earlier than you see it by yourself units.

Google may very well hold its promise this time. Some customers have began seeing the brand new Notes & Lists menu underneath Assistant settings > Providers. It is a server-side rollout, although, so when you’ve got it, you possibly can arrange synchronization with Preserve or any of the opposite providers. In the event you do not, you possibly can be part of me in impatiently ready for it. Thanks, Zachary Kew-Denniss!
