Google Calendar adds Reminders to iOS, Android mobile apps

Google Calendar Gets Reminders.

Gmail has had a “to-do” feature for the longest time, but it was pretty useless, as it was a simple standalone, one-off feature that probably graduated from Labs at one point.

As someone who forgets what day of the week it is on a pretty concerning basis, I’m always on the hunt for the most efficient tech advancements in life organization. With Google Calendar’s new Reminder feature, which lets you embed reminders and to do lists along with event information, I will hopefully join the world of real, on-time adults very, very soon. That means you can create a Reminder when you’re checking your email or just say “Ok Google, remind me to buy birthday candles,” and it will show up in Google Calendar.

Google acknowledged that many Google Calendar users already use events for this type of functionality, or they have a to-do list that is separate from their Google Calendar. Second, instead of having to create an event for each To Do item you have — answer Aunt Patti’s email, buy more paper towels, go running for the first time in a year — you now create “Reminders,” which remain on your calendar each day until you’ve officially completed them. As is true with other Google features, this app feature will pull information it deems necessary to your event or reminder, like an address for a restaurant or a phone number for a business, and add it to your item.

Let’s say you were to have a meeting with someone, by setting a reminder and inviting the person using their email, they will get notified when the time for the meeting is arriving. Like Inbox, Calendar uses information from your contacts as well as Google’s knowledge graph to include extra details so you don’t have to go digging when you need it. The Reminders feature is currently available only on Google’s mobile platform, for both Android and iOS, though the desktop version is expected to launch within the next month.
