Google's Tasks App Works Directly with Gmail and Calendar
Google believes its Tasks mobile application for Android and iOS devices will help users manage and complete tasks more efficiently. The app lets people create tasks lists; view, edit, and manage tasks from any device; and control tasks created in Gmail, Google Calendar, or on the web from mobile devices. It supports granular details within individual tasks, as well as subtasks and the ability to check off progress as parts of tasks are completed. People can create tasks directly from an email in Gmail, view tasks in the side panel of Gmail, and trace tasks back to their source email. Further, the app lets people set due dates for their tasks, organize them by date or priority, and receive notifications to help stay on track. Google Tasks also integrates with Google's G Suite business email service. The mobile app is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
