Other than the Chrome web browser, Google Keep is the app that I use more than any other on my Pixel 5 phone (a phone I like, but don’t love). I use it for bookmarking websites, creating to-do lists and shopping lists, and to set reminders for myself throughout the day. My favorite aspect of Google Keep is the ability to set location-based reminders.
By creating location-based reminders for myself I can be reminded of things that I need to do when I get to specific place. For example, I use it to remind myself of things that I need to tell my daughters’ preschool teachers when I drop them off in the morning. I’ve also used it to remind myself of the first thing that I need to do when I get to school in the morning.
The value of location-based reminders is that they’re not dependent on time. If I’m stuck in traffic and get to school a little later than I planned, the reminder doesn’t appear when I’m still sitting in my car and can’t act on it. The reminder only appears once I get to the place that I need to do the task that I’ve created in my reminder in Google Keep.
In this short video I demonstrate how to create location-based reminders in Google Keep.
