New- You Can Now Create Reminders in Google Calendar

December , 2015
In a recent update to Google Calendar, Google has made it possible for Calendar users to easily create to-dos using Reminders. Before, you were only able to create events or entries to remind you to do things but these ‘reminders’ were not always stable and they ‘come and go’. With new Reminders feature, you can create and track your to-dos over time until they are performed. Undone Reminders will always appear at the top of your Calendar till you swipe them away.

The new Reminders has also the added advantage of being integrated with other Google’s services (e.g. Inbox, Keep, Google now etc). This means that you can create a reminder while you are sifting through your emails and you reminder will automatically appear in Calendar. Additionally, ‘Calendar adds things like phone numbers and addresses automatically. So if you add a Reminder to make call or run an errand, the number or address will be right there when you need it. Just like Inbox by Gmail, Calendar uses information from your contacts, as well as Google's knowledge graph to provide this extra bit of help.’

For now, Reminders is only available for Calendar on Android and iOS
