OK Google - "Take a Note" intigration

TK

Is there any way you can add the ability to add a todo item by voice on android? Maybe by invoking the "OK Google - Take a Note" command?

That could be super helpful.

Thanks!

Hello Tom,

Yes we can... and we did a few months ago :-) Please refer to this post on our blog to see how it works: https://todoist.com/blog/2013/11/todoist-for-android-adds-support-for-google-now-and-dashclock/

huh... does not work on my NoteIII. I only have the options to use Keep or
Gmail.
Do I have to turn it on somewhere?

Tom,

Please make sure that Todoist itself is allowed to send you notifications or try to reinstall the Todoist app.


Best regards,
David

I reloaded the app - still does not let me select Todoist as my note taking
app.

Tom,

Please clarify - did you just reload it or reinstall it? Also, are you using any custom ROMs or any task killer apps or anything that could influence the interaction between apps?


Best regards,
David

Reinstall.
No custom ROMs. I am using the Nova Launcher. No Task Killers.

Tom,

In that case, we don't know why this happens :-( We could never reproduce a situation where Todoist would not show up as an option and have received only a couple of reports over the past months.

In some of these cases it started working at some point - after rebooting the phone or reinstalling the app, but if neither works, then unfortunately, there's nothing we can do until we would manage to reproduce it. However, the code for this is very simple - the app just "lets the phone know" that it's available for adding notes via Google Now.


Best regards,
David

I can confirm that the option is not working on my S5 either. I restarted my phone and also reinstalled the app completely.

Strangely enough - it worked this morning. I changed no settings. I guess my phone just warmed to it.

Hi,

It could be related to the Samsung phones and a feature or setting they have enabled causing issues. Though this should not be the case. I am happy its working now, but wish I could find out what changed.

Regards,
Brendon.

I finally figured it out. Gmail was disabled on my phone. As soon as I enabled it, I was presented with a menu to select which app to use to save my notes...
