Unfortunately Google’s home bred application has remained rather stagnant when compared against rivals, prompting the search engine giant to request new ideas from their loyal fans.
If youâ€™re usingÂ Tasks, youâ€™ve probably thought about something youâ€™d like us to improve or an additional feature you wish you had. Well, we want to hear your ideas â€” whether theyâ€™re for Tasks in Gmail, in Google Calendar, or on your phone.
For the next few weeks, weâ€™re running aÂ poll for Tasks feature requests. We really appreciate the feedback weâ€™ve already received about syncing, sharing, Calendar integration and more, and weâ€™re looking forward to hearing more details within these topics as well as any new requests you have. The poll will remain open until November 19th, at which point weâ€™ll take a careful look at all of the feedback and prioritize your requests. (Official Gmail Blog)
Users are already populating the poll with some really great ideas, ranging from SMS reminders/alerts, the ability to convert emails into tasks as well as providing a better API for developers.
Ironically many users do not seem to realize that third party developers have already built native mobile apps that sync with Google tasks (which seems to be a popular request), although Google might want to consider releasing an official one in the future (outside their default iOS search app that is).
Are you a heavy Google Tasks user? What should Google do to make Google tasks more appeal? Feel free to sound off in the comment section below!
