Samsung Reminder can now sync with Microsoft To Do, Outlook, and Teams

Samsung Reminder can now sync with Microsoft To Do, Outlook, and Teams

Samsung's Reminder app is well thought out and nicely designed, but suffers from a major flaw — it's only available on Samsung devices. That's okay if you're invested in the Samsung ecosystem, but many of us use a Samsung phone along with other devices from different manufacturers, and having your reminders and tasks solely on one phone isn't great. Thanks to Samsung's ongoing partnership with Microsoft, this is no longer an issue, as Samsung Reminder learns to sync with Microsoft To Do.

Google Tasks might not be as feature-rich as some other to-do list applications, but it's still a great option for a simple task tracker. Tasks with specific dates already appear in the desktop version of Google Calendar, but only now is that feature officially coming to mobile.

Google is working on Tasks integration in Calendar app

Google is working on Tasks integration in Calendar app

It seemed like Google Tasks had been on the way out for a long time, but last year, Google decided to breathe new life into it and launched a dedicated Android app for the service. Even though the application has received some welcome additions over the last months, you could unfortunately never add tasks straight from the Google Calendar app (that's only partially possible on the web right now), but Google is working on changing just that. XDA Developers managed to manually activate a Tasks integration in the latest Calendar release, 2019.47.2.

New Chrome extension makes Google Tasks a full-screen, first-class citizen on desktop

New Chrome extension makes Google Tasks a full-screen, first-class citizen on desktop

Google Tasks sometimes feels like an afterthought, shoved into the sidebar at sites like Google Calendar and Gmail. If you rely on its to-do list functionality, but you'd like something with more of a standalone feel, a new Chrome extension turns Google Tasks into its own full-screen thing. The aptly named "Full Screen for Google Tasks" gives you a bigger and better interface that Google should have provided in the first place, though it isn't perfect.

Google Tasks 1.6 gets new FAB, app shortcut, and rudimentary Photos integration [APK Download]

Google Tasks 1.6 gets new FAB, app shortcut, and rudimentary Photos integration [APK Download]

Tasks has long been one of the forgotten, deprecated services at Google, but when it was clear that Inbox was dying, new life has been breathed into the to-do manager, probably to replace Inbox's native ability to assign tasks to emails. Since then, the service is seeing a plethora of updates, and it only recently received timed reminders, recurring events, and proper integration with the Gmail Android app. The latest version, 1.6, brings smaller UI and UX improvements that further round out the experience with Tasks.

Google completely abandoned its standalone Tasks service for a long time and built reminder functionality into Inbox (RIP), Keep, and the Assistant instead.

[Update: Now in Android app] Google Tasks gets timed reminders and recurring functionality

[Update: Now in Android app] Google Tasks gets timed reminders and recurring functionality

Google's Tasks to-do list service may be simple to the point of uselessness for many, and its old standalone web UI could die at any time, but it's still under active development. Proof for that comes today, as Google is rolling out a much-needed change to Tasks, giving us the option to add specific times of the day to tasks and set them to repeat. Note that these changes only seem to affect Tasks on the web for now. Google's Tasks and Calendar apps for Android haven't picked them up yet.

Update Notes for Android Auto, Photos, Tasks, Play Music, Maps, and more (April 30, 2018)

Update Notes for Android Auto, Photos, Tasks, Play Music, Maps, and more (April 30, 2018)

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.
