Google Calendar will let you add custom birthday reminders
Google Calendar is always here for you when you need to remember important dates like a birthday. Right now, Google is working on a new feature that will help you set up custom reminders so you can surprise that special someone on their special day.
Right now, this feature is not available to the public. We’re not even sure it’s in testing. According to Android Police, you can only access the feature in version 2023.08.2-511758217 of the app. Even then, you’ll need to enable several flags. So, you’ll want to take this information with a grain of salt.
Google Calendar will make setting birthday reminders better
If this feature comes out, you’ll see a popup appear when you open the app. It will give you the option to add a birthday when making a reminder. This might seem weird to some people because you’re able to get birthday reminders automatically. When you add a birthday to a contact, the calendar will automatically make a birthday reminder.
However, this feature will give you more options when setting up a reminder. You’ll have just as much control over it as if you’re making standard reminders. So, when adding a birthday reminder, you can choose what kind of notification to get. Also, you’re able to set what date you want it to go off.
So, if you want to get a reminder of the birthday beforehand or afterward, you can. This could be helpful if you’re bad at remembering birthdays. You could get an early reminder and make preparations.
At this point, we don’t know when the company plans on launching this feature. For all we know, Google could pull it before launch. If you’re excited about the feature, then you might want to keep an eye on your app. Make sure that it’s always up to date.
