Types of assistant cards

Save creations

When something is created for you, like a movie or an animation, you can save it. See the creations you've saved here.

Check if something was created for you

  1. On your computer, open
  2. Look for cards that say things like "New movie" or "New stylized photo."
  3. At the bottom, click View unsaved creations (if you don't see any of these, then you don't have any creations to see).

Add suggested photos to an album

If there are new photos that may be related to an existing album, you might get an assistant card to add to the album.

You can review the photos and the album before you add to the album. 

Move photos to archive

If you have photos of documents, receipts, or anything that you don’t want to see in your Photos library, you may get an assistant card to move them to archive.

You can review the photos before you hide them.

Remove an assistant card

To remove an assistant card, click Dismiss Remove.

To stop seeing suggestions, creations, or “Rediscover this day” cards:

  1. On your computer, open
  2. Click Assistant cards Down Arrow .
  3. On the assistant card you want to stop seeing, click the switch.
