Learn new improvements released by Google for Google Calendar. Noted in this article are simple tips and tricks that can make your everyday use of Google Calendar better.
The Google Calendar app was released for Androids last year in November. This past March, Google finally released the app for all your iOS devices. The app has many useful features such as keeping your schedule looking organized and using your emails to make calendar events. If you’re planning an event through your Gmail account, the app can pull the time, location and other details to keep it in the Google Calendar app.
Last week, Google announced new improvements to the app as well as their plan to roll out with more updates coming soon. This article will go over the new features found in the app.
