After its recent update, Google Shopping List and Google Home are fully integrated. This means you won’t have to install third-party apps to manage shopping lists. Instead, you can create and manage them by talking to your Google Assistant.
Google Shopping List also supports integration with several note-taking and productivity apps, including Any.do, AnyList, and Google Keep.
Notes created with Google Assistant will be visible in apps from other providers, but if you select another app later, those notes and lists will no longer be visible through the Assistant.
Using Google’s built-in shopping list is simple and has some benefits. Not having to rely on third-party apps is one of them, but also having a tool that works with your Google Home ecosystem out of the box. Just make sure to track your list in different apps or else you might lose some of them. And if you’re looking for additional uses for your Google Assistant, there are plenty of devices compatible with it, including a bunch of smart LED lights.
