Hey readers welcome back to another written edition of #WhatsUpIman
So today’s question was “How do you stay on schedule being super busy?”… 🤔 I’m pretty sure this was a sarcastic question because I’m rarely on time to most things & I am often heavily over booked.
But the question was humorous in itself so I figured why not share my secrets ha ha.
So recently I have gone from doing basically nothing besides smoking pot and making memories to working 50hrs a week Mon-Sat and traveling every weekend. Still making adjustments but this new Moto Android phone already equipped with this nifty Google Assistant is basically keeping my life from complete unruly chaos as far as scheduling, tasks & reminders and also has all these cool tips that I’m still learning. I am learning her and she is proving to be quite predictive and seems to be learning alot of my patterns and habits…. Guess that’s what they mean by “Smart Phone”
Eventually I may upgrade to an actual PDA but most likely I will just go with some type of Echo or Alexa or other voice operated device of that sort.
So this is a 2 for 1 blog…😊✊
I am also going to do a mini (written only) review on the Google Assistant feature.
Not really sure how to rate an “app” but here’s a little of my experiences vs expections…
So when I first purchased my phone and realized that it was equipped with GA I was slightly intrigued because the prompts were simple and easy to follow. I am also a big fan of anything voice commanded.
GA seems to be compatible with just about everything I install on my phone so I’m assuming is moreso the phone which pretty cool. It goes beyond the “okay Google” I was used to in previous phones. (It’s been at least 5-6 months since I have had a fully functional cell phone.
I was expecting GA to just be another preloaded system on my phone I was going to have to bare with until I figured how to uninstall it.
My experience with GA was weird at first with random but not so random weather updates and live traffic notifications. But being able to basically ask GA anything & voice setting reminders are a life saver.
The most useful part of GA for me is the calendar assistance. Awesome feature takes goals I have for myself like working out, editing videos, writing blogs, staying in touch with people etc and finds appropriate available times for me to accomplish said goals. Even better it becomes predictive and proactive about rearranging my schedule automatically.
The most interesting thing GA does to me is; since I travel quite often it combines pictures, videos, places been, people seem etc and puts cute little titles on it like “Weekend in Burlington” or “trip to Philly & Long island”.
Overall for a constantly overbooked and forgetful type guy this Google Assistant is a helpful hand; proven time and time over to be exactly what I need.
Oh and when I tell her thank you she responds with your welcome… You can’t even get that from some people nowadays.
Thanks for reading.
