Google Set to Improve Google Apps and Google Calendar Integration

Over the course of the next three weeks, Google is going to be rolling out updates to Google apps that will allow for events to be automatically entered into your Google Calendar.  Now users won’t have to create the events on their own – they simply will appear in your calendar from sources like Gmail.  The update is part of the continuing effort from Google to make their apps and services more user friendly and integrated.

In the blog post announced the change, Google uses the example of an upcoming flight you have booked and you have received the email confirmation in your Gmail account.

When an individual receives an email in Gmail with flight, hotel, restaurant, or ticketed event information, that event will be automatically added to their Google Calendar, complete with things like flight numbers and check-in times. Calendar will even update those events if plans change and a new email is received (for instance, when a flight is delayed or a reservation pushed back).

No more having to create these events on your own.  Google apps will do it for you.
