Hallelujah! Notes and lists are finally coming to Google Assistant

Google Keep on a phone

Alexa has been serving up Dunkin' drinks and donuts for more than a year, so really, it's about time that Google Assistant caught up.

One of those new features is the ability to manage your lists and notes. Chief among these features is new functionality with apps like Google Keep, Any.do, AnyList, or Bring!.

And these new integrations are going to be available across Google Assistant on phones, smart speakers, and smart displays, so pretty much everywhere you can already get at Google's little digital helper.

In fact the Nest Hub Max might be where it's most useful if you're using it from something other than your phone.

However, it is important to note that Google will not move over existing notes and lists to those third-party apps, and will instead remain with the Google Assistant notes system/provision.

Shopping list creation can be a very handy feature to have in a voice assistant.

Daniel Jones may miss Monday Night Football against Eagles due to injury
There has been speculation that he would retire at the end of this season after losing the starter's job to Jones. Monday also would have been the first time Daniel Jones played against NFC East rival the Philadelphia Eagles .

Once that's done, you can create new notes and lists using Google Assistant, though Google says that the notes you created before connecting the two services won't show up in your provider's app. If you don't use one of the above ones, though, this might be a good reason to switch to one of them. Shopping lists, holiday gift lists, a list of who is naughty and nice-It seems like you can pick any arbitrary name you want and the Google Assistant will create it and add to it.

As far as additional new features are concerned, you can now ask Google Assistant to search for podcasts by topic, which is a handy feature given the sheer number of ongoing podcasts there are these days.

To see if you have this option available, you open the Google Assistant settings and go to the "services" tab. If you don't see this option then the update functionality likely hasn't rolled out to your device yet.

"Create a holiday gift list".

[OK Google, create a list of Christmas gifts], Or [OK Google, add Galaxy S10 to my list of Christmas gifts], [OK Google, add tomatoes to my shopping list] and [OK Google, take a note].
