New google Calendar app turns your emails into Calendar events automatically
Google wants you to spend less time managing your day, and more time enjoying it. The company has announced its latest version of its Calendar app for Android with some new amazing features.
With this new calendar app, your emails can turn into Calendar events automatically. With the auto-add function all your events will now be automatically pulled in events once detected from your Gmail account. They’ll even stay updated in real time in case of any changes.
”In the new Calendar app these kinds of emails become events automatically, complete with things like flight numbers and check-in times. They’ll even stay updated in real time if your flight’s delayed, or you receive another email update” Google said in the blog post.
The Calendar’s new Schedule view will also include photos and maps of the places you’re going, cityscapes of travel destinations, and illustrations of everyday events like dinner, drinks or even yoga.
The new Google Calendar will work on all Android 4.1+ devices. It’s available today on all devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop, and Google says you’ll be able to download the update from Google Play in the coming weeks. And yes, the company is also working on a version for iPhone.
