Moving a tad more decisively than Microsoft, Google has announced Tasks for Android and iOS and updated its Tasks interface on the web.
“We’re introducing an all-new Tasks on web, as well as new mobile apps to help you handle work on the go,” Google’s David Thackerwrites. “You can use Tasks to create tasks and subtasks, and even add due dates with notifications to help you stay on track. And because Tasks closely integrates with G Suite, you can simply drag and drop an email from Gmail into Tasks to create a to-do. Tasks with due dates can also appear in your Calendar.”
Though Google Tasks is being positioned as a business feature, it works with personal (free) Gmail accounts too.
Based ona Google how-to, it appears to work as you’d expect, and lets you create tasks and lists, access tasks from Gmail or the mobile apps, organize and update tasks, add notes and due dates, sort and delete tasks, and more. In short, everything a to-do app should, ahem, do.
