Reminders can be set on phones, speakers and Smart Displays, and will work with Google Nest Hub Max when it’s available later this fall. When you set a reminder, the person will get a notification the reminder was set in addition to being reminded again at the time or location set in the reminder.

You can only set reminders for people in your Google Family group or who have their accounts linked to the same speaker or Smart Display. The person also must be in your Google contacts. You can also block someone from sending you reminders.
