Tip: Set alarms on your phone using Google search

A few days ago, Paul showed us a cool way to send locations in Google Maps straight to our phones. Did you know you can also set an alarm on your phone, using Google search on the desktop?

Just open the Chrome browser and type, “set an alarm” into the omnibar. Alternately, go to Google on any browser and search for “set an alarm.”

You’ll see a card appear. Simply adjust the time, make sure you’ve selected the correct phone, and click on “Set alarm on your phone.”

To make sure this works, you have to be signed in to Google on the computer you’re searching from, and you need to make sure Google Now is enabled on your phone.

This is just one more cool feature that Google has built into search, which bridges the gap between mobile and desktop and contributes towards a single, unified experience for users across platforms. And I’m all for it.
