Google nest hub and speakers not announcing reminders since switch to tasks

Community Member


I have a nest hub and a google nest mini and since the switch from reminders to tasks they are not announcing my reminders (tasks) anymore. Is this not a feature of tasks? If so how can I get the devices to announce some sort of reminder as this is what I mainly use the devices for.

Hi nberelowitz,

I know how it feels when something isn’t working the way it should. Let’s further look into it. What country are you in? Also, I wanted to confirm if these are the commands you’re using:

  • Remind me to <title> <date> <time>.
  •  "What are my reminders?" 
  • "What are my reminders tomorrow?" 
  • "When is my reminder to <title>?"


If yes, let’s troubleshoot one of your Google Nest devices.


  1. Open the Google Home app > Devices > Choose your Google Nest device > Settings > Remove device > Remove.
  2. Back to the Devices tab, scroll down to Other cast/Local devices > Look for your Google Nest device > Tap on it > Add to a room. Follow the instructions in adding it back to your room.
  3. Unplug its power cord for a minute > Plug back in.
  4. Set a reminder and monitor if it will be announced.
