Task Management Google Tasks It can be a very practical and popular product, but unfortunately it lacks many features and does not even offer a standalone web client. Whether this will ever change is an open question, but there have been some major updates and integrations in the past few weeks that give hope for further improvements.

Google Tasks itself has only one task: to manage open tasks or to-do tasks for users. It works fine, but many functions are missing and there is not even a standalone web app. Perhaps one day that will change, because after a long stalemate, there have been several major updates in recent weeks, giving hope of increased relevance.

Recurring tasks without Google Calendar
The integration into Google Calendar not only called up tasks, but also had functionality for tasks that previously could only be used in this way. Creating recurring tasks was only possible via the calendar, but due to the recent update these can also be created via the tasks interface.

Create tasks from Google Chat
Google Tasks is not only built into Calendar or GMail, but now also in Messenger and Google Chat. For chat messages that are recognized automatically, there is a possibility to create a task in the context menu. This works quite simply and ensures that the connection to the message remains.

Preferred job function
Tasks can be placed in any order in the task lists in Google Tasks, but that’s about organization. A new favorite function has been out for a few days, in which tasks can be marked and starred. If at least one task is starred, then there is a new entry in the list from which all favorite tasks can be called up.
