Google adds a 724th way of creating reminders in Assistant

Adding reminders to Google Assistant is as simple as saying "Hey Google, remind me to..." to your phone or smart speaker. You can also use the Calendar app or website to create reminders, do a Google search for "remind me" on your phone or computer then fill the details, or use the Google Search app and head to the Reminders section.
