This process is very simple. In a demo last week, a Google representative showed how to create a reminder using voice or text and set it to pop up at a specific time or when receiving a specific location on the device display. Users can set a repeat reminder or view the reminder history that the user has sent. All of this goes through the standard "Google" prompt, just like other assistant functions.
There are some requirements for this feature to work properly. Users must create a family group online at family.google.com to manage calls and smart display reminders, which is necessary for people who don't live in the same family. As long as voice matching is turned on, users can also rely on the built-in Assistant's smart display or smart speaker multi-account system.
In order to send a reminder to someone, Google indicates that the person needs to be in the user’s Google Contacts list. For children under the age of 13, parents need to create a privacy-compliant account through Google's Family Link platform, and then pair that account with their child's voice to Google Home speakers.
Google said the distributable reminder feature will begin next month, starting with selected English-speaking regions, including the US, UK and Australia. The feature will also be available in the area where Google Nest Hub Max is available, which will be the Google and Nest co-branded smart display that will be released on September 9.
