How do you set reminders inline on the Android App?
When I'm entering a task, I want to set a date/time reminder combo, so that I will be notified to do the task.
So I enter
Do some task <date 4th July at 10:30>
into the task name. But it doesn't expand into a reminder for the task.
What is the official way of doing this on the Android app?

Unfortunately, there is no support for a <date> tag in the Android app.
There are two types of reminders: relative and absolute. A relative reminder is set automatically to "30 minutes before deadline" whenever you add a task with a time so, for example:
Task name = Do some task
Due date = 4 Jul at 10:30
This will automatically set a reminder to "4 Jul at 10:00" for this task.
An absolute reminder can be added regardless of the date, time or lack thereof, but it requires a <remind> tag in the task's name so, for example:
Task name = Do some task <remind today at 10:30>
Due date = 4 Jul
This will send you a reminder at 10:30. The task also doesn't need to have a due date at all if you add a reminder this way.
