Google’s new, much less intrusive Assistant is already obtainable on the Pixel 4, however the redesign it acquired has principally affected the voice command interface. The updates tab, Google Now’s religious successor, stored the identical look. Now, Google seems to be testing an overhauled dashboard with extra gradients and chronological group.
The brand new updates tab shrinks down the greeting, seems to take away all superfluous prompt motion chips and playing cards, and focuses on the necessities: climate and issues it is advisable know.
The higher part is devoted to the present day then it is adopted by playing cards for the following week and even later within the month. Content material is more likely to be dynamic, and I would not be stunned if a piece for “Tomorrow” confirmed up when you have got occasions scheduled for the next day. The climate card has a coloured gradient that’ll additionally most likely change based mostly on time or climate circumstances.
Left: Present interface. Proper: New design.
All playing cards are expandable and provide suggestion chips for extra actions and an overflow menu to dismiss or change a setting. You may see them in motion within the video beneath.
That is how the playing cards behave. pic.twitter.com/GvC06VoOOT

Based mostly on what we all know concerning the updates tab, it is seemingly that anticipated product deliveries, upcoming flights and reservations, and a few related visitors info will present up amongst these playing cards as nicely.
None of us right here on Android Police have this design and we have solely seen it in a single tip, so the take a look at seems to be restricted in scope.

Again once more
This new Assistant interface is resurfacing as soon as once more for some customers, this time with an introduction card that explains what it’s and provides it a brand new title: Snapshot. Nonetheless, it does not appear that the display is functionally totally different from the earlier updates tab, it simply seems brisker and organizes info extra chronologically. Thanks, Max Buondonno!
