Google will integrate Tasks into Assistant and Calendar. Users can now set reminders, replacing Assistant and Calendar Reminders. The transition will take place over the coming months, making Google Tasks the go-to app for all your to-do needs.

The transition will take place "in the coming months," when users will receive a prompt to try out the new experience. As part of the transition, Goals and Reminders are set to be removed from Google Calendar. Next on the list is Hangouts, as it focuses its Workspace messaging efforts on Chat. Google recently began merging Google Meet and Duo for a single video chat experience that spans personal and work.
