Reminders is an interactive feature that can be set using voice commands.  Johanna Wright, VP of Search and Assist, gave a live demonstration of a Google Now “Voice Action Reminder”. Using simple voice commands, users can set reminders that then show up and activate in the Google Now interface. Reminders work on times, dates and locations, including home and work.
