Google has released a new video that shows the Ambient Mode of the Google Assistant in action. As a reminder, the Ambient Mode makes it possible to transform the lock screen of your smartphone (when it is in charge in particular) in an information terminal and a control panel : mto, calendar, notifications, and controls of connected objects. This feature was presented for the first time at the IFA held in Berlin in September 2019.

Ambient Mode promises to be rather intuitive and promising, failing to be original because it offers features that can be found on a Google Nest Hub for example. In practice, Ambient Mode can inform you of the schedule of your next appointment, you display your different notifications, your incoming mails, and you can directly dye or turn on your connected bulbs. Everything will be on the lock screen of your tablet or smartphone.
