Differences between Google Now and Google Feed
Google Now is the immediate predecessor of Google Assistant. We are talking about a tool based on machine-learning and artificial intelligence that was dedicated to offering relevant information when you needed it. Thus, when you were about to catch a plane, it would offer you information about the terminal and the boarding gate, so that you would not need to look for the ticket. This is just one example, but it sums up the idea: you had to be useful at the right time and place.
When Google Now gave way to Google Assistant, the side feed in which I lived began to change and mutate until what we know today as Google feed. And what is this feed? A mere stream news, a series of relevant articles based on previous reading that also buries the relevant information at the bottom of the feed. For some people it is worse, for some it is better. If you have Google Now and you prefer activate Google Feed because you think it is more useful, then you just have to follow these steps.
