Google Home is getting yet another useful feature: location-based reminders. Yes, now you can ask your Home unit to remind you about something at, let’s say, the supermarket you frequent, and it will make sure the Google Assistant on your phone does that when you are at the location.
Yup, weve all been there. Try saying, “Hey Google, set a reminder to pick up more coffee at the grocery store” and your Google Assistant will remind you on your phone. pic.twitter.com/IkLjV4I2zd

The feature has already started rolling out, as some users are confirming the functionality is working for them. It’s not clear whether location-based reminders are currently only limited to the US, or other key markets are getting the feature as well.
