Google Keep or Tasks Allows To Set Reminders Directly From Notifications

Google keep looks like that has expanded their feature as you can set reminders within Google Keep from notifications.

When you receive a notification that contains information that your system considers to be notable i.e. buy milk you’ll get a Google Keep “Set reminder” trigger within the message notification (via Android Police). It’s worth noting that this seems to only appear when select messaging applications are used.

After tapping a notification, your device will open Google Keep where you can set a reminder with pre-populated information. Because of the linkage between Google Keep, the Google Assistant, and Calendar, you’ll see a reminder in all three places simultaneously.

Android Police also notes that this feature looks as though it is not limited to Google Keep, as you can even set reminders within Google Tasks.

Third-party apps do not support this feature, as of now.

As already mentioned, third-party apps do not support this feature. However, users can set reminders on Google Tasks app as well. When you tap on the Set reminder option, the title will be pre-filled and the user just has to fill in the time or place and simply save it. However, you should note that this works differently when you use Google Keep. Google Keep saves reminders automatically without asking you to add time or place, which you have to manually edit. Matter of fact, many Android users were able to use this feature even with WhatsApp and Telegram.

For those who are wondering how you can disable this feature, you have to perform either of the below-mentioned actions:

  • Settings > Apps & notifications > Notifications > Advanced > Suggested actions and replies
  • Settings > Apps & notifications > Special app access > Adaptive Notifications (select “none”)

Can you set reminders on Google tasks?

To make Tasks the one-stop-shop for all upcoming reminders and tasks, Google is adding three “highly requested” features. These include the ability to set a date and time for tasks and to receive notifications; create repeating tasks; and import reminders into Tasks.
