The birthday reminders pop-up in the notification shade around a week and a half before the actual date, giving you a lot of time to plan something. You will be able to mark these reminders as “Useful” or “Not useful,” so you can hide them if you don’t find the feature to be useful.

When you tap on the birthday reminders, you will be take to the related Snapshot card, where the Assistant will help you find a gift, view photos of the contact, send them a message, sing a personalized birthday song, or find flower shops nearby.

Aside from birthday reminders, the Assistant Snapshot will soon show you “tailored recommendations” based on your preferences for things like recipes, podcasts, and nearby restaurants.
