Users may not be aware of all possible tasks that a virtual assistant can perform. This disclosure describes techniques for user-permitted use of augmented reality (AR) technology to help users discover contextually relevant tasks that a virtual assistant could perform. With user permission, the relevant tasks are determined by recognizing entities and/or locations within the camera view of the user’s device. Additional data from device sensors and/or other known user information such as devices owned or apps installed can also be utilized with user permission. The contextually relevant tasks are recommended to the user as an augmented message, via audio, or other interfaces, thus helping the user discover virtual assistant capabilities.
