Google’s Answer to Head Slaps
“Ok Google, remind me next week to buy my wife flowers for our anniversary.”
You can already use Google Home to hear daily news and Google has just updated Home with the ability to set reminders with your voice, rolling out next Monday to the US, UK, Australia.
Google Home users can now set one-off and recurring reminders (daily or weekly) and even set reminders for months down the road. Google Assistant also understands context - if you ask it to remind you to walk the dog at 6 while you get ready for bed, for example, it will know to set the reminder to 6am.
Reminders you set on Google Home will also notify your Android phone.
In addition, if you have more than one user on Google Home, you'll only hear reminders for you.
