Google Kills Off The “Your Stuff” Tab from Assistant

By Nitish Singh / May 19, 2018

Google is getting rid of the “Your Stuff” tab from Assistant to transform the app into a simplified single tab experience. An “Explore” page is taking its place that brings together all of the cards and notifications into one place. The “Your Stuff” allowed users to get access to personal information as well as reminders, orders, agendas, movie bookings and other active shortcuts that are relevant to users. All of the content from the removed section will now be available under the Explore tab.

The changes were first spotted on iOS in March with the Android update popping up only recently. Opening the Explore section from the Assistant app’s top right corner will allow users to see the same contextual cards and information that was previously available on the Your Stuff page. There are dedicated menus in the new update, allowing users to sort through various categories in a compact menu.

App Actions, which was announced in Google P is also now a part of Google Assistant. App Actions allows the app to show contextual cards from apps that make use of the Assistant API. As more apps allow cards to be shown in the Assistant app, the more App Actions cards should pop up on your device.

All of the Reminders are now neatly grouped instead of showing separate cards, which can be tweaked from the App’s settings. A “More” section is also now available on the app to recent purchases from online stores as well as shopping lists.

The new features were revealed in Google I/O 2018 and other showcased functions like Custom Routines are also making it into the app. The new changes are still in the rollout phase, and all users regardless of their region should be able to see the new Services menu by May 20.
