Tip: Get Reminders with Google Home

If you have a Google Home, you may have been wondering why you weren't able to set reminders with it -- especially since Google Assistant has been able to do it. Well, as Jason Howell reported on This Week in Google 424, support for reminders has recently been added. All you need to do is say "OK Google" and then tell it to remind you of something at a certain time. When it gets to that time, the Google Home will make an alert sound and read back the reminder.

If you were away when the alert occurred, a single LED light on the Google Home will remain on, indicating that there's a notification. You can ask it what your notification is, and it will tell you. Then the reminder LED will turn off. When you add a reminder on Google Home it will also sync into your email inbox and in the notification shade on your Android device.
