Google Is Planning Cross-Platform Timers, Whereas iPhone Can Barely Manage One

Google is working on a feature that will let Pixels or other devices coerced into using the Pixel version of the At a Glance widget to see timers started on other Assistant smart displays or speakers. This Cross Device Timer, as the feature’s strings refer to it, implies that you may set a timer on, say, your Nest Hub in the kitchen and monitor its progress from your Pixel phone if an errand takes you away.
