    Hi all.

    Does anyone know how to create a shortcut for Google reminders?

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's a somewhat clunky way:

    1. Open Chrome.
    2. Type "Google Reminders" in the URL bar.
    3. You should see your reminders as the first entry for your Google search.
    4. Tap the Menu button for Chrome, then Add to Homescreen. This will create a shortcut that brings up this search.

    Thanks for your reply B. Diddy.

    I tried that but it just creates a shortcut which opens chrome to the search results where it lists your reminders.

    Maybe I didn't explain what i wanted properly. I'd like a shortcut which opens the same thing as is opened when you say 'reminder' after saying 'ok google'. Where you can edit your existing reminders or create new ones.

    Heres a image of what I want the shortcut to open:

    Oh I see. It looks like there used to be a way to do that: http://www.droid-life.com/2015/12/17/179332/. However, I can't see that feature any more, so they presumably got rid of it. I can't find any other solution on the web for now ...

    Nice find! Too bad that shortcut option has never appeared for me. I think Google must do these things just to annoy us.

    Thanks for looking.

    It wouldn't hurt to give them some feedback and request that feature to come back. Open the Google app, tap Menu, then Send Feedback.
