Setting Reminders on Android

Do you ever find yourself forgetting important tasks or appointments? With the help of your Android device, you can easily set reminders to keep you on track. In this tutorial, we will show you how to set reminders on your Android phone or tablet.

Step 1: Open the Clock App

To start, open the Clock app on your Android device. You can usually find this app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and searching for “Clock”.

Step 2: Navigate to the Alarms Tab

Once you have opened the Clock app, navigate to the “Alarms” tab. This is where you can set up different types of alarms and reminders.

Step 3: Tap on the “+” Button

To create a new reminder, tap on the “+” button usually located at the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will open up a new screen where you can configure your reminder settings.

Step 4: Set Reminder Details

In this step, you can specify various details for your reminder:

  • Title: Enter a descriptive title for your reminder. For example, “Meeting with Clients”. This will help you identify the purpose of the reminder.
  • Date and time: Select the date and time when you want to be reminded.

    You can choose a specific date and time or set it to repeat daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.

  • Repeat: If you want your reminder to repeat at specific intervals, such as every day or every week, select the desired option from the dropdown menu.
  • Sound: Choose a sound that will play when your reminder goes off. You can use the default sound or select a custom sound from your device.
  • Vibration: Enable or disable vibration for your reminder.
  • Label: Assign a label to your reminder to help you organize and categorize your reminders. This is optional but can be useful if you have multiple reminders.

Step 5: Save Your Reminder

Once you have set all the necessary details, tap on the “Save” button to save your reminder. You will now see your newly created reminder listed in the Alarms tab.

Step 6: Edit or Delete Reminders

If you need to make changes to an existing reminder, simply tap on it in the Alarms tab. This will open up the reminder settings screen where you can edit any of the previously set details. To delete a reminder, swipe it to the left or right and tap on the delete icon.


To ensure that you receive your reminders, make sure that notifications are enabled for the Clock app in your device settings. You can typically find this option under “Apps & Notifications” or “Notifications” in your device settings menu.

Now that you know how to set reminders on Android, you can stay organized and never miss an important event again. Use this feature to keep track of appointments, deadlines, birthdays, and more. Happy organizing!
