Google Assistant is introducing Assignable reminders, a family and housemates collaborative solution.
By using assignable reminders, families and housemates can now better organize their work and life together. According to the Google blog, families and housemate can now create reminders to each other, to do things like pick up the groceries, pay a recurring bill, walk the dog—or send a family member a note of encouragement when they need it the most.
Reminders can be sent and received from people who are in the same Google family group or those who have their accounts linked to the same Smart Display or speaker and are Voice Matched. The recipient must also be in a senders’ Google Contacts.
Google further says they think this feature will be a great tool to help families (and housemates) manage tasks this new school year (Northern Hemisphere) and beyond. It is not yet clear when is the Google Assistant Assignable Reminders hitting the Mzansi shores, however, the feature will be available over the next few weeks in English on phones, speakers and Smart Displays in the U.S., U.K. and Australia, and will work with Google Nest Hub Max when it’s available later.
TechZinto will put out a word to Google to find out exactly when is it going to be available in Mzansi. Once available we will test drive it and report our experience here, keep tracking this space for more.
