Google Assistant has now been updated and the latest functionality lets users assign reminders to even notify their family members about executing essential tasks. This feature begins roll out initially in the US, UK, and Australia – on smartphones, speakers, and smart displays.
The assignable reminders should help users keep track of essential events/tasks. To activate the feature, users could simply instruct Google Assistant to do so; like, “Hey Google, remind XYZ about buying groceries tomorrow.”
When custom reminders are created, these would be notified on the recipients’ smartphones, and all smart devices supporting Goggle Assistant. Also, by again asking Google Assistant, you could check out all reminders which you have assigned to a particular recipient. Just say to Assistant, “Hey Google, what are my reminders for XYZ?”
“This feature will also work for location-based reminders with a specific address or landmark. For example, if you want to remind Claire to pick up flowers—and you don’t know the exact time she’ll be going shopping—just say, “Hey Google, remind Claire to pick up flowers when she gets to the San Francisco Ferry Building,”” states Google in an official blog post.
In case you are desirous of checking out the above reminders feature, the intended recipient should be added within Google Family Group. These contacts must be within your Google Contacts.
In related aspects, it is worth remembering that Google recently doodled the father of Indian Space Program Dr Vikram Sarabhai on his hundredth birth anniversary. This is potentially a sort of a tribute to the great space personality.
