There are times when you have unknowingly set a recurring reminder on Google. And now, you have no idea where it exists. Well, this is how you identify it and remove the recurring reminder.
How to identify the application?
In case you got the annoying recurring reminder on your Android and deleted it. Well, we are in luck. It would be easy to find out which app sent that notification, and in turn, it would also be easy to remove it.
To find the application, go to System Setup menu and touch “Notifications“.
On the Notifications tab, you will see the apps that have recently sent you a notification. Now, in my case, it is the Google Keep app that sent the notification. So you would have to remove the reminder from the Google Keep app.
In case you have set a recurring reminder within the Google Assistant, it is quite easy to remove it. Swipe from the edge of your Android screen towards the center to open the Google Assistant. Just ask “Show me my reminders“. Then tap “More remindersTo see all your reminders.
As you can see in the screenshot above, there is a repeat symbol just below “Drinking water“reminder. This denotes that it is a recurring or repeating reminder. You can touch the reminder to get more information. To remove it, simply check the box next to the reminder. Once you do, it will appear as complete and you will not receive any notification.
If you don’t use the Google Assistant for reminders, you can ask the Google Assistant to “Delete all my reminders” or “Delete all repeated reminders” to delete all reminders.
In my case, I use Google Keep to keep track of my notes. So instead of the Google Assistant, I use Google Keep to set a reminder for a note. Unfortunately Google Keep reminders show up as “null“Inside the Google Assistant reminders.
For example, take a look at the following screenshot, you can see that one of the reminder texts is “null”. This is a Google Keep reminder and it happens because Google Keep and the Google Assistant are not linked. At such times, it is difficult to remove these null reminders without knowing the text.
Therefore, a better way to delete Google Keep reminders is from Google Keep. To do this, go to the Google Keep app and tap the burger menu in the top left-hand corner. From the navigation panel, tap “Reminders “.
On the Reminders page, you will see your Google Keep reminders. The one with a repeat symbol below them are recurring reminders. For example, in the following screenshot, “Quotes for me” is a recurring reminder. Touch to view the entire note, then touch the reminder time to edit the reminder. About him Edit reminder pop-up window, you will have the option to “Delete” the reminder.
Once you have removed the recurring reminder, it will also disappear from the Reminders page.
The Google app contains reminders for both the Google Assistant and Google Keep. It is practically identical to what you see in “All Reminders” of the Google Assistant. You can remove it from the Google Assistant and the Google app.
To view reminders from the Google app, go to Google appand navigate to “Plus“tab. In the More tab, you will have an option called”Reminders“. Play it. In Reminders, you will see recurring reminders with a snooze symbol below the reminder. In my case, you can see on the snooze symbol below the “drink water” reminder.
Tap on the cash register next to the reminder tag and it will be marked as completed. Now, you will not receive reminders for this particular instance.
Unlike Google Keep, the Google Assistant, or the Google app, there is no single window where you can see all of your reminders. Hence, deleting recurring reminders in Google Calendar would require a bit of understanding. Also, Google Calendar contains reminders from all Google applications like Google Assistant, Gmail, Google Tasks, etc. Therefore, you need to be careful when removing reminders.
Scroll through the calendar to find out the reminder for which you have been receiving recurring reminders. In my case, it’s about “drinking water” and, as you can see, it’s recurring on a daily basis. Touch the recurring reminder to view the description. You will see just below the time and date, it says “Repeats daily.”
In the reminder description, tap the meatball menu or the three dots in the upper right corner. Select, Delete. Then select “This and the following reminders“To delete all instances of the reminders and tap the Delete button.
These were the ways to get rid of recurring Google reminders on Android. For more issues or inquiries, let me know in the comments below.
