You can now set Google Now reminders without touching your phone

Google Now offline
Setting reminders has always been a handy function of Google Now, although a bit fiddly, with fine details having to be finalised by hand. But a new update to Google Search which has been slipped in, will now allow you to set reminders completely hands-free.

The update works exceedingly well with the Google Now Launcher, or once you launch Google Now. To set a reminder, you simply invoke the ‘Ok Google’ command and apend ‘Remind me to…..’ adding a time at the end and Now will then ask for you to confirm the reminder by saying yes – or reject it by simply saying no.

It’s simple functions that make all the difference, and with these latest updates Google Now is continuing to show why it’s leading the field.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Wow, really? This feature has been available since I can remember. Even CNET wrote an article about it a year ago http://www.cnet.com/au/how-to/set-a-reminder-with-google-now/

I have a habit of saying ‘Reminder’ and then typing my reminder in because I got sick of Google Now stuffing it up. Google Now, now says ‘Yes, what is your reminder’ or something similar.
