Google planning to move “shopping lists” back to Keep from Assistant


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.

During a reddit threadt, the Googler referenced the announcement at Google I/O earlier this year, which would allow users to switch their lists to other sources including Keep, Todoist and more.

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.
