Type “Note to Self” into Google to Send Notes to your Android Phone
Recently Google announced a feature that allows you to send directions to your Android phone directly from a search box. What they didn’t announce is that you can also use “note to self” to send a reminder directly to your notification shade.
To send a text note to your phone, follow these steps:
- Open up Google.com on your computer and type “note to self” plus the text you want to send into the search box.
- Press Enter.
- Edit your note (if necessary) and choose a device from the drop down list.
- Click “Send note to your phone.”
- Open your phone and your note should be in your notification shade.
This feature requires the latest version of the Google app, Google Now notifications enabled, Web & App Activity enabled, and you must be logged into your Google account.
