Google Assistant adds support for Keep, Any.do, and other third-party note apps
Google Assistant is finally adding support for Keep, Any.do, and some other third-party note and list taking providers. Today, Google has integrated Google Keep and three other services in Google Assistant. In addition, Google Assistant is also picking up two voice capabilities for photos and podcasts.
The assistant currently has a built-in provider for taking notes and lists by voice. This generic solution works across devices, but is quite rustic and does not have a real mobile or web client. But today, the tech giant has added support for some third-party apps. Assistant voice commands for taking notes, creating lists, and adding items to existing ones now work with Any.do, AnyList, Bring!, and Google Keep.
This new integration hears your commands using your mobile, speakers, or smart devices and stores them in the app of your choice. To set-up, visit Assistant settings to connect your note/list client of choice with Google. The “Services” tab has a new “Notes and Lists” menu to select and start the third-party integration.
One thing to note down here is, Google will not move existing notes and lists to those third-party apps, but they’ll still be accessible by directly asking. Assistant notes support is rolling out starting today, example — holiday-themed — commands include:
- “Create a holiday gift list.”
- “Add Stadia to my holiday gift list.”
- “Add cranberries to my grocery list.”
- “Take a note.”
- “Show me my notes.”
Another new capability is searching for shows to listen to with Google Podcasts. Let’s say, “Hey Google, find a podcast about holiday cooking” or “show me podcasts about New Year’s resolutions” will work in English on all Assistant-enabled devices.
