Google’s on a roll with updates lately, in anticipation of the upcoming Google I/O every major app is getting tweaked and improved. Calendar is once again getting some attention, and the feature we saw a couple of weeks ago that finds time for your goals is back with a different purpose. Now, Google Calendar can find time for any meeting you want to schedule.
If you’re using Google Apps for Work or Edu, every new meeting you schedule on the Calendar will automatically be found a free time slot by Google’s algorithms. And the best thing about it is that the same algorithm simultaneously finds the best time slot that works for everyone in the meeting. The official blog post explains this action in more detail:
“With a single tap, “Find a time” helps you find meeting times that work for everyone—even if they’re in different time zones—based on their availability and the times they usually have meetings. If there are no times that work, Calendar will look at which conflicting meetings can most easily be rescheduled. Designed specifically for organizations where sharing your calendar with colleagues is the norm, here’s how it works:”
In my analysis last week I was saying that Google’s quietly building a life manager, and that seems truer by the day. It’s times like these that it really pays off to be a part of the ecosystem, and it seems like every new update encourages us to drop every alternative app and make the switch to Google’s services.
The feature is useful when it comes to business/school meetings, and I’d like to see it extended throughout the Google ecosystem. What’s more, with a couple of tweaks the app can proactively ask you to enter every activity you have coming up, and it can automatically find the best time for every activity and appointment in your life.
