New Google Now ‘Occasional Reminder’ Feature Set to Roll Out
The new functionality should let users set reminders for various high-priority activities.

Google has updated its reminder feature with a new functionality called 'Occasionally' that lets users set task-specific reminders instead of the usual time-bound ones.

According to an Android Police report, users should see the 'Occasionally' option in Google Now task reminders, along with already existing fields, viz. today and tomorrow.

Once the new Google Now functionality begins its official rollout, users will be able to set reminders for high-priority tasks on particular occasions or frequent activities.

Users should see 'occasional reminder cards' on top of Google Now feeds when the functionality is activated. These cards indicate that the new feature has been selected and is currently active.

According to Android Police, users can also choose to dismiss or postpone a reminder for the next day.

However, as the latest functionality is still in the rumoured stage, other details, such as the time interval that needs to be set by users in the functionality, are not available at this juncture.

Rumours say Google has started rolling out the functionality in certain regions, but the exact details are not yet available.

On paper, the rumoured 'Occasionally' feature seems to serve as an alert for tasks or activities that need to be performed on a particular day for a specific reason.

Users can check Google Now to see if the feature is available on their respective Android versions.
