Manage tasks with Google Tasks

Set up Google Tasks

Have tasks sync across all of your devices with the Tasks view and Google Tasks Ability on Focals. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Download the Google Tasks app from the App Store or Google Play Store if you haven't already.
  2. Log in with a G Suite account and jot down some to-do’s.
  3. Open the Focals app and select the Menu icon > Abilities
  4. Tap the Google Tasks slider and log in with the same G Suite account from Step 2.


Tasks are synced to and from the G Suite account you used to log in. Whether you mark a task as complete on Focals or in the Google Tasks app, it’s all effortlessly synced with this G Suite account.

Add tasks

  1. Navigate to the Tasks view on Focals.
  2. Select a task list and click to open it.
  3. Click Add a task and say your task out loud so Focals can transcribe it.


You can add tasks from any G Suite application on your browser, too. Select Google Tasks icon to open the Google Tasks side panel and have any new tasks or changes appear on Focals.

Manage tasks on Focals

  • You can add due dates to tasks through your Google Tasks app or browser to see the order of tasks change on Focals. Tasks that are due the soonest will appear first on Focals. 
  • Organize tasks into lists so they're easy to find on Focals.
    Move up on the Tasks view and select the Add List icon to create a new task list on Focals.
