After controversially moving shopping lists in Google Assistant from the cross platform, universally useful Keep platform to the not-so-useful, US-focused Shopping Express service early last year it appears Google has had a change of heart with a Googler talking about moving lists back to Keep.
The ability to switch to your preferred Notes and Tasks lists was referenced during the on-stage presentation by Product Management Director, Google Assistant Lilian Rincon.
Google has been iterating on the design and functionality of the Assistant screen, with ease of use and accessibility being a main focus. Giving users access to the default apps for lists and tasks etc. is an excellent user-focused move.
There’s no time frame beyond: Soon – but we hope it’s ‘very soon’.
