Google Calendar Android app is recently updated with a new feature, called Reminder. Using this feature, you will be able to add to-dos for a particular day to your Google Calendar. Your reminders are visible along with added events but in different colors. This will help you to easily recognize the to-do items that you need to complete.
You can also mark to-dos as completed. One more interesting part is that if a to-do is not completed, then it will be visible automatically on the top of your Google Calendar app the next day. So until you mark the task as done, to-do item will follow you.
Above you can see the notification of this new feature when opening Google Calendar in my Android phone.
Note: This feature also works from Inbox, Google Now, and Keep.
