Google today announced a new feature called for Assignable reminders for the Google Assistant. With this feature, you can now create reminders for your friends and family. For example, you can create a reminder for your partner to do things like pick up the groceries, pay a recurring bill, etc. This feature will also work for location-based reminders.
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.” The Assistant will then create a reminder that will pop-up for Claire when the Assistant recognizes that she has arrived at the Ferry Building.
This feature will be available in the U.S., U.K. and Australia for English language users on phones, speakers and Smart Displays. Later this fall, it will also work with Google Nest Hub Max. It is important to note that you can send and receive assignable reminders only from people who are in your Google family group or those who have their accounts linked to the same Smart Display or speaker as you and are Voice Matched. The recipient must also be in Google Contacts of the person who is sending the reminder.
