How To Set Reminders With Google Home

With every update and a new feature, the Google Home is getting better and better. The reminders are no exception. It may sound strange, but reminders weren’t always a thing. It wasn’t implemented in the Google Home device until almost a year after its release.


Now, there are plenty of ways you can create reminders – three, to be exact. They are a handy feature. One you will use all the time. If you want to figure out how to set reminders, you’ve come to the right place. We will show you all the options you can try out. So, let’s begin. 

Option No. 1

For the first option, all you have to do is issue the command to your Google Home device. You can say “Ok, Google, remind me…” and here you can say whatever you want to do. For example, if you want to set a reminder for a specific time, you can tell Google to remind you at that specific time. 

If you want to go to the grocery store at 8 am, you can tell Google to remind you to go at 8 am. The Google Home will automatically save that reminder and share it with you when the time is right. 

 If you’ve set way too many reminders and you lost track of them, you can ask Google what those reminders are. It will immediately list all the reminders you issued. 

If you want to remove some of the reminders you’ve set, you can always tell Google to delete them. You can delete all or one particular reminder. It’s up to you. 

Option No. 2

For the second option, you will need your phone. But, before you make any reminders, you need to make sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi the Google Home is. Log in to the correct account, the one you connected with your Google Home device. 

Next, open your Google Assistant and issue the same command as you would to your Google Home device. 

Option No. 3

The third option is manually. If you don’t want to issue verbal commands, you can always manually set the settings. To do that, open the Google Assistant and select the blue button in the top-right corner. 

Go to “Your Stuff” and select “Add a reminder”. Next, type in your command. Select the time, day, or whether it should repeat. When you are done, select the checkmark in the top-right corner and the reminder will be set. 

To remove the reminder, go back to “Your Stuff” and select “See All”. Here you can pick the reminder you created and delete it from the list. 


The Google Home device has plenty of awesome features you can use. One of them is the reminder option. This device wasn’t always equipped with the reminder feature. It was implemented much later. But, now that feature is improved and you can access it in many different ways. That’s why we made this guide for you, to show you how to access them. So, go ahead and try it out for yourself.
