Google is testing radically revamped Assistant Updates feed

Google is now testing a drastically dissimilar design for Google Assistant "Updates" which sorts information in a chronological manner. The redesign is significantly different because until now, cards were being organized by topics such as "Keep track of things" and "Coming up for you". The new update currently seems to be limited A/B testing since this update has not yet rolled out on most devices.


A Brazilian user reported the new user interface when he opened Google Assistant. The redesign arranges cards by dates, presenting events happening "Today" first. It also features a much smaller profile avatar in the top right corner with a personalized greeting.


As shown below, the "Weather" for current city accompanied by the temperature and condition is listed. To view the hourly forecast, a chevron is available which can expand the card to show expected weather for "Tomorrow", "This week" and "This weekend". The pleasant aqua background of weather card is much different from an otherwise bright feed, attracting attention.

Basic information for events happening in the "Next week" and "Later next month" is also included on cards. Appointments can be enlarged to reveal further information. Alternatively, "View in Calendar" can also be accessed. This Google Assistant Updates redesign shifts focus from sorting cards in a topic wise manner - "Coming up for you" - to an uncomplicated timeline which can be arranged quite easily.
