Samsung Reminder app update makes it easy to sync with Microsoft To Do
If you frequently use Samsung’s Reminder app to get things done, we have some good news: You can now sync up your tasks with Microsoft’s To Do app, making it easy to sync reminders across multiple devices.
The new functionality is available in an update to version 11.6 of Samsung’s Reminder app, which enables syncing with Microsoft To Do. If you agree to let the services sync, you’ll be asked to log in with your Microsoft credentials and approve the connection.
Unfortunately, tasks you’ve already created won’t sync. But once a connection is made, you’ll see everything under a new To Do tab at the bottom, which will display all your tasks.

As Android Police points out, the functionality isn’t perfect. For one thing, Microsoft To Do doesn’t support images, so reminders with images will only be saved in Samsung’s Reminders app, which in turn won’t sync across devices. Although the feature says you can sync your reminders across To Do, Outlook and Teams, they’re only showing up to To Do so far, according to Android Police.
Turning on syncing will allow users to be more productive across devices, especially if you own products from different manufacturers. It would be nice if Samsung’s Reminders app was available outside of its own store, but syncing with Microsoft To Do is the next best solution, and further supports the partnership between the two companies.
