Use notifications for tasks

You can receive task notifications in the Google app, Google Tasks, and Google Calendar. If 2 or more apps are installed on your phone, only one app notifies you. For example, if the Tasks app isn’t installed, but you have Calendar and the Google app, then Calendar notifies you.

Tip: To get notifications, add a date and time to your task. Learn how to add or edit a task.
