  3. Tap any of the upcoming reminders.
  4. Tap Delete and then OK.

See your reminders

When it’s time for your reminder to appear, you'll see a Google Now card in the Google app and a notification on your device. If you don't need the reminder anymore, swipe the reminder away.

iPhone & iPad

Reminders aren’t available for the Google app on iPhones and iPads. To create and manage your reminders on your iPhone or iPad, you can create reminders using the Google Calendar app.

Computer

I don't see my reminders in the Google app

  1. Make sure Google Now cards are turned on, and that you've turned on notifications. 
  2. Check your notification settings to make sure Google Now notifications aren't blocked. If your notifications are set to "Priority" or "None," you won't see your reminders.

If none of the other steps work, report a problem. In your report, tell us as much as you can about the reminder you tried to set. For example, tell us what time or location you used for your reminder.
