How to Use Location-based Reminders
I started this year with a goal of improving my fitness. As I wrote on January 2nd, I use Google Keep to set reminders to do things that will help me reach my goals. I use Google Keep to get reminders on my phone at various points in my day. Those reminders are time-based. But there is another way to get reminder notifications in Google Keep. That way is through location services.
When you create a location-based reminder in Google Keep, you get a notification when you arrive at a location of your choosing. For example, you could have a reminder pop-up as soon as you arrive at school in the morning. The example I use in the following video is a reminder when I get near my local post office to put a bill in mailbox.
