Last year, Google announced that Google Assistant and Google Calendar Reminders had moved to a new home inside Google Tasks via migration. Well, that hasn’t changed, with Google providing a timeline of what users can expect.
This migration happens in three different ways, based on what type of Google Account you have: Workspace customer, Google account through work or school, and personal Google account. Below we’re highlighting the personal account situation, as it’s probably the most relevant to our readers.
If you use Google with a personal account:
- You’ll see a prompt in the Assistant and Calendar to move reminders created in these apps to tasks starting on March 6, 2023.
- If you haven’t already migrated, Assistant and Calendar Reminders will begin migrating automatically in Q2. We’ll share more information on this timeline in future updates to the Workspace Updates blog.
As Google explains, once the migration is complete, users will be able to view and manage all to-dos in one place: work. A blog on the topic elaborates, “You’ll be able to add task features like organizing to-dos with multiple lists and adding details for additional organization. Tasks can be accessed on the web in Google Workspace apps like Gmail, Calendar, Docs and Chat, making it easy to create tasks without needing to switch tabs or apps. If you use the Assistant, you can create tasks directly from the Assistant.”
March 6. Mark your calendar.
