Lilian Rincon, the senior director of product management for the Google Assistant, runs a team of 20 people at Google’s campus in Mountain View, California.

Rincon said her team at Google, called the features team, is “at the heart of the Assistant.”

“The way that we’re organized, there are other teams that kind of handle the mobile surface and the speakers and the hardware, et cetera,” Rincon told Business Insider. “But my team is that one that really thinks about what are the types of things that the Assistant should be able to do?”

Before starting at Google nearly two years ago, Rincon worked at Skype and, before that, at Microsoft.

Rincon, who recently spoke at a Latinas in Tech summit in San Francisco, said she tests features of the Assistant in her own life, from cooking along with her smart display to letting her kids request songs from “Coco” on the Assistant in the car.

Here’s what a day in her life looks like, from waking up at 5:30 a.m. to fit in a workout before her kids wake up to ending with emails and wine.

Rincon wakes up at about 5:30 a.m. so she has time to do a quick workout — which includes core work and yoga — and take a shower before her kids wake up at about 6:15.

After her children wake up, Rincon helps her daughter get ready. “These days I find myself trying out new hairdos on her,” she said.

Rincon does her makeup with the help of her Google Home Hub smart display. “I didn’t actually know how to put makeup on until, like, the last 10 years — so I kind of use it to look at YouTube videos and figure out how to do my eyeshadow or whatever,” she said.
