Is there a way to export Google reminders?

In Google ecosystem, these reminders are everywhere. In Google Calendar, Google Inbox, Google Keep, Google Now, etc.

But is there a way to export/ sync these reminders to any outside service/ provider?


For Inbox Reminders, I found a way to at least export their urls to a readable plain text list, using the javascript console. I've used the snippet below:

Array.prototype.slice.call(document.getElementsByClassName('bV dj')).map(function(i){ return decodeURIComponent(i.href.replace(/^.*url\?q=([^&]*)&.*$/,'$1')) })

Which prints a comma-separated list of urls that I can copy and paste elsewhere.

  • What are "inbox" reminders? I've only got reminders in the actual Calendar and when I paste this into the console it returns an empty array, even when there are lots of reminders showing on the screen. – Michael Dec 2 '18 at 17:00
  • I meant Google Inbox Reminders: support.google.com/inbox/answer/… I understand that Google is discontinuing the product on March 2019. – Webler Feb 2 '19 at 16:15
  • Google support suggests exporting reminders data with Google Takeout. See support.google.com/inbox/answer/9117840?hl=en. Note that HTML is the only available export format. – thisgeek Mar 21 '19 at 14:59

I could export the content of all reminders text, URL or both from the developer console with

JSON.stringify(Array.prototype.slice.call(document.querySelectorAll('div.bg.summTaskTitle > span')).map(i => i.innerText))
