Smart devices in the form of personal assistants are becoming more common and more dynamic. In addition to audibly exchanging information with a user via a mechanism such as a smart speaker, a personal assistant may now include a display to present useful ambient information to a user, such as time, weather, calendar information, or upcoming events. Techniques are described for adapting a screen layout of such a display based on proximity of a viewer relative to the display, allowing an effective and efficient presentation of the useful, ambient information.
