I'm able to set reminders on my Android Google Calendar and Inbox app, but how do I see these on the desktop Google Calendar website?

I can't seem to find it anywhere.

  • You can't. Just like Google's other disjointed projects, Reminders is as well. You can only get Tasks on the desktop/web browser. – user116415 Oct 23 '17 at 15:41

    You should select the other answer as accepted. – Utku Apr 4 '18 at 1:38

As shown above, Chrome can show the reminders. Apparently though, you can either show Tasks or Reminders...but not both.

    "Above" what? Please note that answers can be sorted in different ways. An answer that was "above" your answer before may not be now, depending on sorting, score, or acceptance. You might want to be more specific. – ale Aug 27 '18 at 17:39
  • As this answer was accepted now the only "above post" is the question (by the way, I updated my answer) – Rubén Apr 11 '19 at 15:07

UPDATE 2019/04/11

My old accounts doesn't show anymore the switch to Remainders option but accounts created this year, consumer and G Suite accounts show both, Reminders and Task Calendars. I didn't searched yet for an official help article or post about this, but if you can't wait, look at the G Suite Update alert blog, the Google Calendar Help Center and the new Google Calendar Help Forum.


To see the reminders,

  1. The reminders calendar should be enabled.
  2. The reminders will be shown on the corresponding day

To enable the reminders calendar,

  1. Click on the options button for the Task calendar

'Options' button in Task Calendar

  1. Click on Go to Reminders

'Go to Reminders' button on Task Calendar options

    This is now the right answer. – B-Stewart Aug 9 '18 at 1:45
  • I don't see this option - I see only "Display this only", nothing above it. – bers Mar 9 '19 at 6:54
  • This option seems to have been removed from calendar. Now it only shows "Display this only" – Ryan Peters Apr 11 '19 at 12:26
  • @RyanPeters Yesterday I got a brand new G Suite account from a client's domain and it has enabled the Remainders calendar by default it's also enabled on a consumer account that I created on January. I didn't made yet any special configuration to Google Calendar, I didn't use Inbox by Gmail on these accounts. – Rubén Apr 11 '19 at 14:40
  • @bers ^^^^^^^^^ – Rubén Apr 11 '19 at 14:41

Reminders show up as a calendar, so it must be checked to see them. Now when clicking create event the option comes up to choose event or reminder. I hope that helps this worked as of 10/9/2020.

go to settings (where you can choose what your view on your calendar) and under "Calendars" - check "Reminders" and they will pop up on your calendar.

It's the browser. Google Chrome doesn't work. Try another like MS Edge which worked for me.
