Google Assistant reminders directed to Google Tasks

On Android, there is no shortage of ways you can remember to do something. For example, you can ask the Google Assistant to set a reminder, or you can link a reminder to Google Calendar. It can get a little messy, so to tidy up this flow, Google announced a migration of Assistant and Calendar Reminders to Google Task which will take place in the coming months.

There is a big advantage to this move, although it may take some getting used to. As Google explains, Google Tasks is the perfect home for this exact thing because it can already sync with all your devices, and it also supports Workspace apps via built-in integration on Gmail (shown above), Calendar, and Chat.

For non-Workspace users, this will also affect how you create reminders / tasks with the Google Assistant, but in a good way. For example, if you need to remind yourself to take a drug every day at a certain time, creating and managing that activity is as easy as saying, “Ok Google, remind me to take the pill every day at 6pm.” The Google Tasks UI will then appear and help you manage that task.

Google says these changes will happen “soon”, so if you want to check out Google Tasks right now, feel free to download the app below. The company notes that it will send notifications to users when it is ready to start testing this new feature.
