Set Google Now reminders using Voice or Text

Google Now service gives real-time information about the weather, traffic in your area and more. You can add reminders to the service by using your voice or entering it manually. These reminders once configured, recur or pop up at pre-set time.

Google Now silently runs in the background, and all the information added in the form of reminders gets organized into simple cards that appear just when they’re needed. This helps you spend less time digging, search what you are looking for and spend more time working. The reminders are placed somewhere in between alarms and calendar events.
