How to create reminders and tasks in WhatsApp

Whatsapp is adding more and more features to its widely used messaging app to compete with equally as popular and more feature-packed apps like WeChat. The Facebook-owned messaging platform has added integration with Any.do
This integration will allow you to create and send reminders to your contacts right inside Whatsapp.
Any.do announced the partnership in a blog post and detailed just how the integration will work within WhatsApp (via Android Police). From today, you’ll be able to use the Any.do bot to send reminders like “pack my charger” or “renew my car insurance” all from within WhatsApp.
The only downside to this integration is that you will need a premium Any.do account to integrate your account with WhatsApp messenger.
Here is how to do it
