Google discontinues 3rd-party Notes

Conversational Actions used to be the initial way for third-party developers to integrate with Google Assistant. However, Google has shifted its focus away from third-party voice experiences, including apps and games with visual interactions on Smart Displays or speakers.

Google will be shutting down the third-party Google Assistant Notes & Lists integration on June 20. Users have long had the option in Google Assistant settings to select a Notes & Lists provider for voice commands that allow you to create or edit a list/note on speakers and Smart Displays.

Google Keep, Any.do, AnyList, and Bring Shopping Lists are among the options, according to 9to5Google.

The developers of AnyList have announced in a blog post that "Google is shutting down the Google Assistant Notes & Lists integration for non-Google apps on June 20, 2023".

"Unfortunately, this means that beginning June 20, it will no longer be possible to use Google Assistant to add items to AnyList," it added.

Moreover, the report said that the Notes & Lists integration is built on the same Conversational Actions/"Actions on Google" platform that will be phased out next month.

Conversational Actions were the first method for third-party developers to integrate with Google Assistant. However, third-party voice experiences, such as apps and games with visual interactions on Smart Displays or speakers, are no longer a top priority for the company.
