Google Calendar hits Apple's iPad
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.
