Understand how action suggestions work

What are action suggestions?

When you use the Google Assistant, you may get action suggestions that you can select to perform an action or learn more about the response. Action suggestions create a more personalized, helpful experience. The suggestions can appear on different devices, like your phone, TV, or Smart Display, and can appear during different Google Assistant interactions.

How action suggestions are created

Action suggestions may use information that we collect when you use our services, like questions you've previously asked the Google Assistant or events you've created in Google Calendar, to create a more personalized experience.  For example, if you ask the Google Assistant about an upcoming flight, it might suggest asking about the weather in your destination. Action suggestions may also be based on popular questions related to what you’ve asked.

Control the actions you get

You can influence which action suggestions you get when you delete past activity or turn personal results on or off. You can also control what activity gets saved to your Google account when you adjust your Activity controls.

Visit Google’s Safety Center to learn more about collected data, how it’s used, and how to control your privacy settings.
