Before this week is over, Google will have rolled out the Reminders feature in the new versions of Google Calendar that will be available for instant download on Google Play and the App Store. By early next year, the Reminders feature will be available for use on the web for those using PCs.

According to a blog post by Vijay Umapathy, Product Manager at Google, we achieve better with our time when we make use of Reminders and it will be available for use in Google Calendar to help manage everyday lists and business schedules among others.
Some people actually use Calendar, but they have their to-do lists somewhere else and this causes them to forget what is very important when they need it most. But with Google Calendar’s new Reminders feature, you can easily access your to-do lists together with all scheduled events.
Google’s Reminders has an advantage over Events in that it appears on your Calendar for many days until you do the needful and then swipe it away to reveal the next thing to do on your list.
Another benefit of Reminders is that you’re able to see the phone numbers and addresses of people you wish to contact after you’ve added them or the to-do list associated with them on Reminders. As you can see with Inbox by Gmail, Reminders accesses your phone contacts via Google Calendars to enable you see numbers and addresses when Reminders get to work for you.

Another great thing to note is that Reminders work across Google, meaning that you can create reminders via Inbox, Google Now, and Keep. It is now possible to create a Reminder while going through your email and the to-do point will be added automatically to the Calendar. Whatever it is you wish to do in the next few minutes, weeks or months, you will find Google’s new Reminder feature via Calendar very useful to your everyday purposes.
