An important capability of mobile device operating systems and/or virtual assistants is to provide contextually appropriate suggestions that enable users to perform quick actions such as obtain navigation guidance, start media playback, listen and respond to messages, etc. Devices such as vehicle infotainment consoles include additional contextual information, e.g., fuel gauge level, driving stage, etc. that can be important when determining suggestions that are provided via such consoles. This disclosure describes on-device ranking of candidate suggestions to deliver the top ranking suggestions via the vehicle infotainment console. With user permission, the ranking can be based on relevant contextual factors, e.g., driving stage, available locally to the infotainment console. Selective display of suggestions improves the user experience of interacting with suggestions provided via such consoles.
