Articles about Google Calendar

As the name suggests, Google Calendar is a calendar and scheduling service run by search giant Google. The beta version of Google Calendar debuted in April 2006 followed by a general release in 2009. As of August 2021, Google Calendar is available on several platforms including Android, iOS, Windows, and the web. The platform allows users to create and manage events, set reminders, invite other Google users to collaborate on events, and other such useful collaborative features making it a lifesaver for G Suite and Google Business account users. Google also incorporated machine learning-enabled features such as “Events From Gmail” where information from emails can be used to automatically create Calendar events and “Smart Suggestions” where the app recommends titles, contacts, and locations when creating new events. Google Calendar comes preinstalled on most Android devices. The service remains free to use but G suite and Google Business customers get a few additional services and features.
