This well-known app by Google is now available for the iPad and allows its users to search their calendar from the home screen with Spotlight Search, also having many more useful features currently in the pipeline.
According to a blog post published by Google on Wednesday, Google Calendar has finally optimized for Apple's iPad tablets. Although an iOS version has been around for two years already, that version of the app was only tailored for the iPhone handsets.
The new Google Calendar version comes with a set of new features, including machine intelligence-driven ones. The list of changes includes the following:
smart scheduling for finding a time and booking a room for meetings
intelligently schedule time to set goals and achieve them
search the Calendar from the home screen using Spotlight Search
Google also promises more updates are scheduled to arrive soon, mentioning a Today View Widget that will allow Google Calendar users to easily see their upcoming events in both the Notification Center and the lock screen.
Since Google added AI-driven features to its office tools last year, the new Google Calendar for iPad comes at a right time, although Apple's tablets are no longer as popular as they used to be.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
