You will be forced to use the extremely basic and incredibly sluggish user interface that is a component of the Google app since Google Calendar is expected to lose Assistant Reminders. Google recently updated Reminders’ usability and brought back the dark mode, yet the problem persists.
Google Reminders for Android received a dark look in September, which is configurable by system settings. It vanished recently, but Google app 13.33 has brought it back and it finally displays the status bar. When scheduling to-dos, Reminders used to become fullscreen, making it necessary to swipe down or just open the notification shade in order to see the time.
A refresh button has taken the place of the profile avatar in the app bar, which is more practical given that this web view occasionally malfunctions. The app bar no longer has a blue symbol. This UI element’s shadow has also been lessened.
The FAB (floating action button), which was previously a four-color plus sign enclosed in a circle, has also undergone some changes. It is now blue and shaped like a pill. The creation sheet is no longer obscured by your keyboard after tapping.
Last but not least, the hamburger menu that included links for Send Feedback and Help has been taken down. Unfortunately, despite these UI changes, performance is unchanged.
reminders.google.com can now be used to access assistant.google.com/reminders on the web. Given the new URL’s introduction earlier this year, it’s unclear if this portends a more significant change.
Reminders are being replaced with (Google) Tasks in Google Calendar for Android and iOS, therefore those features will soon be gone. Although Google has not yet made this change official, it just acknowledged that Goals will soon be deprecated. Google Keep should continue to offer the ability to create reminders.
