How to Set Up Jarvis

First, go to the Jarvis website. Click the Talk to him on Messenger button to add Jarvis to Facebook Messenger. A new chat window with Jarvis will open up. Just say “Hello” and the first thing Jarvis will ask is what city you’re in to figure out your time zone.

And that’s it — you’re ready to start using reminders. Say “Help” at any time to get examples, to change your timezone, and see your reminders.

How to Set a Reminder

To set a reminder, you just have to tell Jarvis what to remind you and when. If you want a reminder to pick up milk at 6 PM tomorrow, use the following message:


“Remind me to pick up milk tomorrow at 6 PM.”

You’ll receive a message through Facebook messenger at that time with your message.

You can also use specific dates and times, or periods of time. For example, you can say:

“Remind me to feed the dogs in 20 minutes.”
