One of my favorite features of the Reminders app is the ability to share lists over iCloud. The Reminders app includes great features like the ability to add and remove members from a list, and even to remind list members to accomplish tasks when they’re at the correct location to do so. Once you get the hang of using Reminders to share your lists, you may just wonder what you ever did without this feature. Let’s get started learning how to use the Reminders app on your iPhone to share lists.
Google Home is getting yet another useful feature: location-based reminders. Yes, now you can ask your Home unit to remind you about something at, let’s say, the supermarket you frequent, and it will make sure the Google Assistant on your phone does that when you are at the location. Yup, we’ve all been there. Try saying, “Hey Google, set a reminder to pick up more coffee at the grocery store” and your Google Assistant will remind you on your phone. pic.twitter.com/IkLjV4I2zd Made by Google (@madebygoogle) March 14, 2018 The feature has already started rolling out, as some users…
Google added voice-controlled Reminders to its Home devices last September, allowing it to catch up with Alexa and Siri. You could set one-off and recurring reminders on a daily or weekly basis as well as contextual reminders that would propagate to… Engadget RSS Feed
Remember how long it took Google to make reminders work on Google Home? I won’t bore you by recounting the whole sage, but the wait was substantial. At least adding new reminder features isn’t taking too long. We heard some weeks back about location-based reminders in Assistant for phones, but the Home release was “in the coming weeks.” For once, Google actually meant “in the coming weeks.” It’s live right now on a Home near you.
Apart from letting you control music and HomeKit accessories, the Siri-based speaker can also help you remain alerted about certain things that you don’t want to forget. Creating reminders with Siri on HomePod is dead simple! All you have to do is keep your command as precise as possible.
So, whether you want the personal assistant to remind you to wish your friend the happy birthday or prompt you to carry lunch to the office, it will get your work done smartly. All of your created reminders sync to the iOS device connected to the speaker (only if it has access to Contacts, Messages, Reminders, and Notes of your device.) Just ensure that your iPhone and HomePod are on the same Wi-Fi network.
How To Set Reminders on HomePod using Siri
“Hey Siri, remind me to complete my project.”
“Hey Siri, remind me to take iPad to the office tomorrow 9:00 a.m.”
“Hey Siri, remind me to get ready for the birthday party on Saturday afternoon.”
“Hey Siri, remind me to call my bro when I leave the house.”
“Hey Siri, remind me to cook sandwich tomorrow in the morning.”
You can also ask Siri to add items to your pre-set lists in Reminders app.
“Hey Siri, create a new shopping list.”
“Hey Siri, add ketchup to my shopping list.”
“Hey Siri, what’s on my shopping list?”
“Hey Siri, remove bread from my shopping list.”
“Hey Siri, mark milk as completed on my shopping list.”

Google ahead of the MWC 2018 is making some major announcements to its products including the ARCore, Lens, RCS Message and now it is the Assistant. The company says that it is aiming to improve Assistant with some key features like more than 30 languages support, multilingual support, location-based reminders, Routines and more throughout the year. After teasing with Android One and Go phones that are coming at MWC in a couple of days, Google today mentioned that by the end of this year Assistant will be available in more than 30 languages, reaching 95% of all eligible Android phones worldwide. In the next few weeks, Assistant will be available in Danish, Dutch, Hindi, Indonesian, Norwegian, Swedish and Thai on Android phones and iPhones. Furthermore, it also said that it is making the Assistant multilingual later this year, so families or individuals that speak more than one language can speak naturally to the Assistant. This move is to make Assistant understand you in multiple languages fluently. Multilingual support will first be available in English, French, and German and more languages to join soon. Next up is the expansion of Assistant capabilities by allowing it to perform various actions on the phone and inside your apps. Google is said … Fone Arena
If you were around for yesterday’s activities, you’ve already seen that Android Pay has been switched over to the new Google Pay branding, along with some upgrades to both the look and function. As part of the announcement, we were told that the Google Wallet app would be undergoing a short term rebranding of its own, taking on the name Google Pay Send. That version is now here, and unsurprisingly, it has been given some minor visual touch-ups.
With Personal Requests, you can ask Siri on your HomePod to send a message to a friend, set a reminder so you don’t forget to run errands or make a note to capture a quick thought…. Read the rest of this post here
