These changes are related to the migration of these products to GoogleTask so that users can manage their tasks from one place. This implies a simplification in the processes of administration and organization of activities.
There is no exact date for this integration yet, but the change is expected to happen in the coming months. So you must be prepared to manage your tasks in Google in a different way.
In the coming months, when you use Assistant or Calendar to create or view reminders, you’ll see a notification on your phone or computer asking you to be one of the first to try the new Tasks experience.
What are the benefits of this Google integration?
We all know that changes sometimes generate some resistance, however this movement in Google will bring some benefits that could improve the performance of notifications.
For example, it will now be possible to add pending tasks using the voice commands of Assistant.
Regarding this, the company comments:
“Just say, ‘Hey Google, remind me to call Dad every Thursday at 6pm’ to your phone or smart display and it will appear in your to-do list as well as Calendar. And don’t worry, if you specify a date or time, you’ll also get a notification when it’s time to complete the task so you don’t forget.”
Secondly, Google will also allow users to generate tasks directly from google-chat and will include a new button “Add to tasks” in gmail so important activities don’t get lost in your inbox.
