google now reminders

A batch of overcooked pasta is a small inconvenience, but when Google Now users rely on reminders to take their medication, pay bills, or get to the next appointment, bugs can become a cause of major headache.

According to several Reddit users, the reminder functionality of Google Now is currently broken. The app sets the reminder successfully, but the reminder popup doesn’t fire off at the set time as it should. As you can imagine, that can lead to all sorts of nuisances.

Reddit users Sloth_on_meth first reported the issue and screen capped it in this short video.

Several users in the thread have confirmed the issue; we were able to replicate the issue on a Nexus 5 with the latest version of the Google app, but not on other devices.

It’s not the first time we see issues with the reminder function not working. Before, however, trying to set a reminder returned an error message. Now the issue is more troublesome, because users are not alerted that the feature is disabled.
