To set reminders and alarms, I used to be able to type text in the Google search bar like “set reminder for 10 AM to pick up groceries”. The result would respond with the “setting reminders” interface and I’d just confirm to set the reminder. Exactly the same for alarms.
But for a few months now, that search query doesn’t bring up the reminder or alarm interface. It “searches” Google.
As initial troubleshooting, I cleared the data and cache on the Google app and the Clock app. But no dice.
In my testing on an old phone, the Google app version that last supported this feature was 10.7.5.21 from a year ago. But I can’t find a way of installing that old version in my Samsung Note 10 plus. Uninstalling the updates to the Google app takes it back only a few versions and even if I get the old apk, the phone doesn’t allow installing that old version.
