Get ready to bid farewell to Google Reminders
- Google will be migrating Google Assistant and Calendar Reminders into Google Tasks.
- There is no set date for a full mandatory swap from Reminders to Tasks.
If you’re someone who uses Google Calendar Reminders to create and view reminders, then you’ll be in for a bit of a surprise soon. A new update will be migrating the feature into Google Tasks.
Google has announced today that it is introducing a change that will migrate Google Assistant and Calendar Reminders into Google Tasks. What this means is you’ll be able to convert all of your reminders into to-dos that you’ll be able to find in Google Tasks. While users will still be able to create tasks in their Calendar, everything will be moved to Google Tasks so it can all be found in a single place.
In addition to merging Tasks and Reminders, the update will also bring new functions such as an “Add to Tasks” button in Gmail, the ability to create tasks directly in Google Chat, and the ability to sort tasks into lists.
The rollout won’t happen right away, however. Google says in the coming months, users will see an opt-in prompt when they create or view reminders in Google Assistant or Calendar. This will allow you to migrate your reminders into Tasks before the migration happens for all users.
As for when the opt-in notifications will start, there are no details at the moment. There is also no given date for when the big migration that affects all Workspace users will happen either.
