Many may not even remember, but there was a time when Google had a task and reminder platform under the Google Tasks name. Today, in fact, this platform exists, but it has been abandoned for so long that the applications of the competition for years that exceeded the service of the great G at the functionalities and utility level.
Currently, there are still third-party customers who take advantage of the Google Tasks engine, to give users the ability to synchronize their tasks and reminders with a Google account, but No sign of an official app … although this could change soon.
As they have discovered in Android Police , Google would have decided to resume the development of Tasks, starting with a new web application that would be on the way, and who knows if later we could see an official application for Android, with a completely renovated design.
One of the first clues discovered about the new Google Tasks, is the cover image icon , which symbolizes the icon check with the material design lines of Google, and a similar appearance to the rest of the icons of the company’s apps.
On the other hand, since the last update of Google Tasks, those in Mountain View have modified the internal URLs of the service , and now, when visiting one of Tasks addresses , we are redirected to another different URL, belonging to the Tasks service, although an error of 404 will appear. This does not happen, however, when accessing a non-existent service of the company, which points to the fact that, although today it does not it is possible to access, the website exists, and Google continues to work on the platform.
The details of the new Tasks platform, as well as its operation, are still unknown. We do not know if it will be integrated with other services such as Google Assistant or Keep , or if it will continue to be an independent service. I am afraid that we will have to wait until we know more information about Tasks, the platform that until recently did not seem to have disappeared.
