    I have started to use Google Now and was wondering if anyone could help with a few issues:


    1. When setting a reminder, now do I get it to show in my Google Calendar?
    2. When using the Mic to ask questions, why doesn't Google Now always speak back the answer to me? Most times it just bring up a list of web links.
    Any help would be very grateful.



    Thanks.

    1. A reminder isn't going to get added to calendar. Google Now will keep track of that, and remind you at the right time. If you want to add a calendar entry instead, you can use google now to create a calendar event - for example, "Create a calendar event: Dinner in San Francisco, Saturday at 7:00PM"

    2. That depends on what you are asking, and what the results are. If your question leads to a clear predictable answer (example: what is the square root of 81). But if you ask a question for which the answer isn't clear, or may vary depending on who you ask (example: what are the causes for a heart attack), it will perform a google search instead, and just show you the results.

    Google Now views reminders and events differently.

    Reminds are "out of sight, out of mind" until you need them.
    "Remind me when I leave work to get milk"

    Events are something they imagine you needing to plan around, and therefore show will in the calender.
