Google's helpful scrollable Snapshot of your day has vanished from phones

According to a post on 9to5Google

According to a post on 9to5Google, Google's Snapshot function, which was introduced in 2018 and was occasionally (but not frequently) updated, is now defunct.The Android feature, which could be accessible through a little and quickly missed inbox icon on the Assistant screen, would display all of your current information in a scrollable interface, including appointments, weather forecasts, traffic, and reminders. It was a little but useful feature, but it was also difficult to locate unless you knew where to look. As a result, very few Android users were likely aware of it.

According to 9to5Google, the capability appears to have vanished entirely from Android phones. (It wasn't available on my Pixel 6 phone, which runs Android 12, but it was still available on my previous Pixel, which ran Android 10.) So it seemed virtually inevitable that Google would eventually proclaim Snapshot's demise, which it did in March when it began displaying alerts within the app.For years, Google has experimented with apps that collect and expose our personal information.

 It launched Google Now in 2012 as a complete digital personal assistant; over time, it was gradually phased out in favor of the much more interactive (and verbal) Google Assistant, and its visual information collections were (sort of) replaced by Snapshot.Snapshot can now be added to the list of Google apps that have been deactivated. If you are a Snapshot lover and want to retrieve the previously available data, Google has created a help page that lists the different sites where you may find it. "Hey, Google, what do I have planned for today?" is another option.
