Todoist is designed to get your tasks out of your mind and into your to-do list. And it’s super easy to do that by typing out your tasks on your phone or computer. But when you’re holding groceries, walking the dog, or cooking in the kitchen, speaking out your tasks is a lot quicker than spelling them out.
That’s why we’re revealing a completely redesigned Todoist for Google Assistant, to make adding tasks with your voice easier. Learn how it works and get examples of how you can use it in your day-to-day below.
A Day With Todoist for Google Assistant
To start using Todoist by voice, just say a few words to any Google Assistant equipped device:
“Let me talk to Todoist.”
Todoist will provide plenty of options for adding, viewing, and completing tasks. Whether you want to add a task on the go, or hear what you’ve got due today, this integration will save you time and make your life a little more hands-free.
You can also perform actions in Todoist in just one sentence, too:
“Hey Google, ask Todoist…”
