What is Google Calendar?

Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling service that was created and currently maintained and updated by Google.

It can be used by users to take note of special dates and appointments, and the service itself can automatically remind users of important events, such as upcoming meetings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

Being part of the much larger Google Drive suite of programs, it can sync with some of the other tools as well, especially Gmail.

It can prove extremely helpful especially since it has features that can greatly make use of the personal information stored on Gmail such as:

  • Goals
  • Reminders
  • Events from Gmail
  • Smart Suggestions
  • This uses the event information stored on Gmail
  • Makes use of the To-Do activities noted in Gmail
  • Recommends titles, contacts, and locations from your Gmail account when creating events

A machine learning feature that allows users to schedule their activities in a way to allow them to reach specific goals more effectively.

Accessing Google Calendar can be done from any browser and the only real requirement is that the user has an active Gmail account to log on to since guest accounts are not currently a feature.

The Google Calendar service is also available as separate smartphone apps available for both Android and iOS devices, allowing them to sync with the Gmail apps as well.

One aspect that makes it so popular is also just how easy it is to use.
