Within just a short period of time, Google released two updates that show it really wants people to start using Google Now and its Reminders feature. The first update to Google Keep added the option to set reminders for notes, which tie into Google Now. The second update to Google Now itself adds the ability to set reminders for your favorite artists and TV shows.

Google Now Reminders has a lot of potential, but currently the biggest issue with it is the lack of easily accessible editing. Let's say you set a reminder to get alerted when there's new episodes of a TV show, but later you change your mind. How do you delete the reminder? Or if you set a reminder in Google Now -- not Keep -- and need to change the time or location you need to be alerted, where do you edit the reminder?

  • In order to delete or edit a currently set reminder, you'll need to launch Google Now and then scroll to the bottom of your cards. From there, tap on the menu icon and select "Settings" followed by "My Stuff" and finally Reminders.

The easier method to setting reminders you'd like easy access to edit later on is to use Keep, but that semi-defeats the purpose of using the convenient voice commands of Google Now to set said reminders.
