Google has added a new feature to its Google Tasks app. Tasks lets you make reminders and create to-do lists and a simple yet powerful new feature is added to tasks that frankly should have been on the app before. This new feature will allow you to put a star on any task to highlight the importance of a particular task. For example, you can use the star to designate tasks that you consider to be priorities.
Other similar apps such as Microsoft To-Do also allow users to put a star next to a particularly important task to help the user quickly find which ones are more important than others. Google said when announcing the new feature, “We hope this update makes it easier for you to prioritize your tasks and quickly navigate to important tasks in your projects.” It will be offered to users of the desktop and mobile versions of Google Tasks.
Stars indicate tasks that are more important than others
On the Google Workspace blog the company wrote: “In Google Tasks, you can now star important tasks. This is similar to functionality that already exists in Drive today.
Google started rolling out the feature on Wednesday, June 8. Still, it can take 15 days or more to reach everyone, so don’t start panicking if it hasn’t landed on your phone by the time June 23 rolls around. It sometimes takes a little longer for an update to reach its destination.
