    I just did a quick "remind me " in 5 minutes to take a shower and it worked with OK Google....

    Did OK Google talk back to you? To save the reminder??

    Interesting. I've never set a location based reminder.
    As for switching platforms for one feature (if I'm fact android cannot do it), tell her to send you a text without disrupting the video she's watching, then tell her to write a memo on her iPhone without turning on the screen, then tell her to make a pic similar to this one.

    I think the OP is saying the reminder is set for when they got home.. So the location will trigger the reminder.

    Out of curiosity is "home" a Google Voice recognized word for starting a task?

    Did OP have "Home" set for the Google account? Did OK Google know where home was?

    I used s voice to remind me when I get to work. I see the reminder in the Samsung calendar. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

    Edit: So much for that, it set it for 21:55 for some reason.
    S voice no longer gives the option to set a work address though.

    OK I just set a reminder to print at work.. No time given. I will let you guys know if it works in the morning.

    All I said was "set a reminder to print at work" Google asked "do you want me to save?" and I said "yes"

    Im kinda embarrassed-2106.jpg

    Although I'll never use this feature, I want to get it to work with s voice.
    I prefer s voice over google for one reason. With Google you have to use "ok google", that sounds stupid to me. With s voice I can set my own wake up command.

    It's obvious what the OP has to do.

    I know it won't be easy...days where you'll question your decision, wonder if you should have made the change, or if you should go back....but I really think you have to do it!

    I also use location based reminders all the time. Make sure when it sets it shows "place" instead of "time" .

    What are your Location and Location History Settings?

    I made it to work and it did not alert me either. So looks like there may be an issue.

    FYI.. My location is set to GPS, WiFi and Mobile.

    nothing to embarrassed about..both are good devices..
    but all you really have to do it turn on your phones side by side and see how much better the screen is on the note 5 ; > my wife would not DARE Start a comparison with me with .. but then again she hates Apple and i converted her to android a few years ago ; > i think her having to sync her phone with itunes was one of the major reasons!

    And you have in Google your Home and Work addresses set? What about your Location History Settings? I think I've read that for this kind of things Location History must be turned on, but I have mine off since they got rid of the Location reporting setting and incorporated into Location History, causing now that if you have Location History on it drains battery a lot as it's pinging your location to Google's servers ALL the time.
