In the final step of cleaning up the app, Google Folds Assistant and Calendar reminders into its To Do app. The company wants to make it easier to manage your tasks and reminders from each of these three apps by unifying its task systems.

Currently, Google Tasks — which first launched in 2018 as a standalone app — operates in its own silo. You can set tasks, subtasks, and reminders in the iOS and Android apps or through a side panel in Gmail or Google Drive on the web. However, those don’t actually show up in your Assistant memories. In addition, Calendar has two separate options to create tasks and reminders, which may confuse users.

Google is trying to change this with an update that will be rolled out in the coming months. Once it’s available and users set a reminder with the Google Assistant, it will show up in both the To Do and Calendar lists. They also get a notification for the reminder to complete the task at the set time.

“We’ll soon be simplifying our task management solutions by migrating Assistant and calendar reminders to Google Tasks. This means you now have an easy way to view and manage all your tasks in one place via Google Tasks, whether you create them with Assistant or Calendar,” the company said in a blog post.

Google said users will see a prompt in the coming months to try out the new integrated task experience when using Calendar or Assistant. In addition, the company will remove the Calendar Reminders options once the migration is complete.

But before you forget, Google Keep also lets you set reminders for various tasks. But there’s no integration with Google’s notes app with this update, so we’ll just have to keep waiting for a mega-to-do integration from the company.
