Google Calendar alternatives

Google Calendar
Google Calendar is a free time-management web application offered by Google.

Google Calendar allows multiple calendars to be created and shown in the same view. Each can be shared, either read-only or with full edit control, and either with specified people or with everyone (public calendars).

Google rolled out new updates for the web version of Google Calendar, finally giving PC users the sleek layout and intuitive controls offered on the mobile app version of the G Suite tool. The redesigned calendar layout will automatically adjusts to better fit the size of your screen. Most of the other features coming with the web redesign will be helpful for people using Calendar within wider organizations.

2017 Google Calendar improves integration with Microsoft Exchange


For companies that use both Google’s G Suite and it's Microsoft alternative - Exchange in parallel, the new Google Calendar update arrived. G Suite admins can now allow their users to see real-time free/busy information across the two systems. This means tools like Google Calendar’s Find a Time feature and Outlook’s Scheduling Assistant can now easily talk to each other, for example. Once an admin has enabled them, these new Calendar Interop features will be available on Google Calendar for Android, iOS and the web, as well as all Outlook 2010+ clients on desktop, mobile and web.


2017 Alexa now works with G Suite calendar


Amazon’s connected speakers and other Alexa-powered devices will now work with your G Suite calendar. Once enabled, users will be able to ask Alexa to give them an overview of their day or make changes and other additions to their calendar as needed, just by speaking. The change represents another step towards making Echo and other Alexa speakers more practical devices to have in the office, or for general business use. G Suite is not the first calendaring platform that Alexa supports. The company has offered Google Calendar integration since launch, and added support earlier this year for both Outlook Calendar (including Hotmail, MSN, and Live email accounts) as well as Office 365 Calendar, for those with Exchange Online mailboxes.


2016 Google Calendar added reminders on the web


Last December Google added a to-do function called Reminders to the Google Calendar iOS and Android apps. Recently it became available in the web version. Reminders basically amp up Google Calendar’s to-do list, so you can not only create tasks in your Gmail inbox, Google Keep, or calendar, but see a reminder that shows up on top of your Google Calendar, haunting you until you finally pay that bill or call that person or do whatever it is that you keep putting off.


2015 Google acquired mobile calendar app Timeful


Google has acquired the calendar app Timeful that is intended to reduce stress, increase productivity, and bring better life balance to all the people overwhelmed by everything that competes for their time. The app worked by initially learning the daily scheduling habits of its users, before using notifications to help prioritize certain tasks. If the user stated their intention to go to the gym three times a week for instance, the app would offer suggestions and reminders for scheduling those sessions in during a user’s free time. Google plans to apply Timeful’s technology “across products like Inbox, Calendar and beyond,” Product Management Director Alex Gawley said in a blog post.
