For the past several releases, the Google app has been working on a way to “Get suggestions from your Assistant on your ambient display.” Google app 10.16 provides our best guess at how this could work, and it very much looks like the current Assistant “Updates” feed.
Introduced last year at I/O, Assistant Updates — also referred to as “visual updates” by Google — is the spiritual successor to Google Now. New strings point to Assistant on the Ambient Display featuring the same top greeting found on the full version:
Also making an appearance is “Agenda,” which sounds like the existing card that displays your schedule and reminders. This includes what’s “coming up” next and your events “tomorrow.”
Your commutes and how long they’ll take will also show up. This currently pulls from your calendar and your daily trips to work/home.
One addition is an alarm section that notes what alerts you have and when they trigger. Users also have the ability to “set an alarm” from here.
