Google Now Reminders "Can't reach google at the moment"1 Recommended Answer
Since the update to Google app, I can no longer set reminders. I just get an error message with a grey exclamation point and a message saying it 'reminder not set can't reach Google at the moment'. I'm on 5.0.1 on a nexus 5. I can see some people a year ago with this error, but nothing recently. I've tried clearing the cache, rebooting, turning off Google now and then turning it back on. The problem persists. Any ideas out others with the same problem?
1) Disable Now Cards through the Google search app. (I didn't delete my preferences)
2) Go into your phone settings -> manage accounts -> google account -> remove account
3) Restart phone
4) Add your google account back to the phone and sign in
5) Re-enable Now Cards using the google search app
I am now able to set reminders by voice and by manually typing them in.
You can go to settings > Applications > all running > Play services. Click on "force stop" on all services. Also "force stop" play store. Click OK on Amy prompts. Now try syncing.
Let Me know if this helped.
Her phone can connect to Google to see her current reminders, but she cannot add a new one. Generic cannot reach Google at the moment error message when she obviously already has connected.
I have tested on Wi-Fi and mobile data with the same results. Also tried rebooting phone, cleared Google Search cache, reverting to an old version via uninstall updates (this just simply made the reminder crash the app).
I rarely post on forums such as this but I haven't seem to find a solution yet, much to my surprise.
