A new feature of Google Assistant is making personalized recommendations of restaurants and recipes based on users' search history and smart device data. Some recommendations are further tailored to time; for example, dinner recipes are suggested in the evening. Though the feature is currently limited to consumer sectors, CPG clients should pay serious attention to it.
