Reminder notifications not working on Android or Web -- any tips?
3
It is only Reminder notifications on both Android and Web that do not work.

Event notifications work on both Android and Web.

I have verified that Calendar notifications are turned on for both Android and Web.

I have reinstalled the Calendar app on Android and this did not solve the issue. I also temporarily stopped synchronization of Calendar for the associated Google account on my Android device and this did not solve the issue.

Not sure what else to try -- Reminder notifications just all of a sudden stopped working in both Android and Web. 

Appreciate any help on this matter.

There are no reminder notifications if there is no specific time set to the reminder.

I have set times for Reminders and there are still no notifications.

Are there any other options to try?

Desktop does not have notifications of reminders. For the phone app, have you tried clearing cache of the Calendar app? What phone are you using?

I have tried clear Calendar app cache, app data, and reinstalling the app. None of these options worked.

I am using Samsung S8+.

Reminder notifications were working as of last week, but now are no longer worker for some reason.

I am having the same issue with Google Calendar app on my Samsung S8 since the 6/30/21 update to the app.  I receive push notifications for events but not for reminders and this has resulted in missed tasks, taking medication, etc.

  I have tried everything.  All permissions for notifications are correctly set in both the app settings and device's settings.  I cleared data and the cache, checked sleeping apps, calendar sync, optimization settings, I uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I even removed the associated account from the device and re-added it to no avail.

  It's interesting to see in Setting --> Notifications --> Recently Sent that it says they're coming through but I'm not actually getting them. For example I have a reminder set at 5:00am that didn't come through - when I checked at 6:08am in Settings--> Notifications --> Recently Sent, there was one for Google Calendar supposedly sent 68 minutes ago. 

I've been battling this for the past 4 days, read all the forums, tried all the suggestions and nothing has worked.  I need a solution!

Same here for 4 days, have tried literally everything and nothing works. I've seen a lot of users experiencing the exact same problem, so there's no doubt the problem is on Google's side. Same as mentioned above me, this made me miss taking meds on time, miss all sorts of calls/errands that had to be done and so on.
We really need an update or fix to this! ASAP!

Thanks so much for looking into this! Unfortunately reminders still dont provide notifications for me. I first checked notification settings, cleared cache and turned phone off and on and then tested but no notifications.  I then tried to uninstall and reinstall the calendar and tested but no reminders (both new and old reminders that have been set for a long time).

Still not working on my Note 8. Reminders are literally 99% of the reason I use Google Calendar and this loss of functionality is extremely disruptive. I hope there is a fix soon as this is impacting my business.

Everything is up to date, Google app updated, restarted phone (Samsung S8), still no reminder notifications

Here is some more information that might be useful, at least on my Galaxy S8, running Android 9:

Reminders set within the Calendar app (on the phone or in a browser), DO NOT notify on the phone (Old reminders and newly created reminders are both affected)

Reminders set within Google Assistant, DO notify on the phone

Reminders set within an event in the Calendar app (on the phone or in a browser), DO notify on the phone

Reminders set within the Calendar app or Google Assistant, DO notify on the open Calendar browser tab

(Yes, I cleared the cache and data for both the google app and the google calendar app; Yes I have restarted multiple times.  I received a google app update on 7/5/21 and a Google Calendar update on 7/3/21; I'm pretty sure it started with the Calendar update).

I rely on reminders daily, so this is... a big issue ;)

Same problem.  Everything works except the "reminder" notifications.  It shows in the notification log as being sent, but no pop up, no sound, and nothing on the notification bar.

Tried everything that I can google as a possible solution.  It started the same day I got the last update.

Agreed. No reminder notifications on home screen or lock screen (android). Definitely a bug, as we all have the same issue. I hope Google solves the problem and doesn't just say "re-install", etc.

It's not a calendar thing. it's a Google app thing. "Hey google, remind me in 5 minutes to walk the dog" says ok I'll remind you. Then doesn't.

I have been having the same problem recently. I did not think that it could have been an update, but I now see I recently got an update for google calendar on the 30th. None of my reminder notifications are working and it's very frustrating since I rely on them. I have tried several things to troubleshoot it, as others have done, but nothing worked. I hope that this problem can be resolved soon! Thank you!

I'm having exact same issue on my Samsung S8 since the most recent update was applied to the Calendar app, have also tried clearing cache, uninstalling/reinstalling Calendar app, verified notification settings, and other attempted fixes mentioned by others in this thread.  The workaround I found is that if I create the reminder via the Google Assistant, instead of directly from the Google Calendar app, the notification works.  This isn't preferable to me long-term.
