This disclosure describes virtual assistant techniques that automatically detect, with user permission, a conversation between a user and other individual(s), and provide information relevant to the conversation. For example, a user may be approached by a stranger with a request for directions to a certain business. Based on user-permitted factors such as the ongoing conversation, the user location, the user’s location history, etc., the virtual assistant readies a map relating to the stranger’s query. Further, if the user permits, voice identifier of the participants of a conversation is maintained. If the participants in the conversation meet again, the user is provided with information from the last conversation which serves as a conversation starter.
