[Update: It's working now] Setting reminders from Chrome is broken

There are myriad ways to set reminders tied to your Google account, although Google Home is notably not one of them. But I digress; it looks like Chrome has joined Home in not supporting reminders. Until recently, you could set reminders just by typing them into the desktop Chrome search box. Google seems to have broken this feature, but it's still listed on the support page.

Google Home will now let you schedule calendar appointments, reminders coming soon

One of my biggest complaints about the Google Home has been its inability to schedule calendar appointments or set reminders. I tend to forget little things like running a specific errand, cooking supper, or doing the laundry... I take after my father that way. From what I've seen across the internet and from you fine folks who read AP, I am not alone.

We've all forgotten to do things that we promised to do. Luckily, we have these fancy personal assistants to help us stay on course.

A seemingly minor update to Google Calendar began rolling out earlier today, bumping the version number from 5.5.7 to 5.5.9. There aren't any apparent changes to the interface with this release, but it does come with some interesting things under the covers. A teardown reveals a new feature for the office that will allow people to schedule conference rooms, the return of reminders that can be snoozed, and possibly a "new api" for developers to work with.

Google App v6.0.17 Is Readying Data Saver, Snoozing Reminders, Signed-Out Search Mode, And Three Exercising Mascots [APK Teardown + Download]

Anytime there's a big version jump, there's almost always something pretty big to be found. The Google app just leapt from v5.14 to v6.0, but those big new features don't seem to be showing up quite yet. That doesn't mean there isn't still something to see. A teardown shows that there are at least a few things to look out for, either now or in the future. This version appears to be rolling out through the beta channel, so if you want to check it out without signing up to the beta, or if it hasn't rolled out to you yet, there's a download link at the bottom.

Google Calendar On The Web Gains Sleek, Less Intrusive Event Reminders

When you create an event in Google Calendar, you have multiple options for how you want to be reminded. Google can shoot you an email or text, though if you know you will be at your desktop, a pop-up notification may be better. But those things can also be pretty intrusive.
