Google Calendar vs Yahoo Calendar
Last updated: August 23, 2018
Google Calendar is a free time-management web application offered by Google. The Ajax-driven interface enables users to view, add, and drag-and-drop events from one date to another without reloading the page. It supports view modes such as weekly, monthly, and agenda. 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).
Yahoo! Calendar is a Web-based calendar service from Yahoo!. It can read calendar feeds and events syndicated from sites that make use of the published Yahoo! calendar programming interfaces.
Face to face in the news:
2018 - Google Calendar now lets you add a message when you change an event - a new advantage over Yahoo Calendar
Google Calendar gets a new useful feature. When you change or delete an event, a dialog box now pops up that allows you to attach a short message to the event to explain why you are making the change and what’s changing. On the event page in Google Calendar itself — and in the email that alerts your guests of the change — that message will then appear at the top of the event details section. The new dialog box appears automatically, so far more people will now explain their changes than before. This new feature is now rolling out to all G Suite users and should be available to everybody (no matter whether their admins have them on the rapid release or schedule release schedule) within the next three days. Thereby Google Calendar now provides better notofications than Yahoo Calendar
2015 - Google acquired mobile calendar app Timeful to fight Yahoo Calendar
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.
