Google Apps users are going to start having an easier time managing their calendar. With an update rolling out this week, Google Calendar will begin automatically grabbing events that it detects in Gmail — like flights and hotel or restaurant reservations — and adding an entry for them. Those entries are supposed to stay updated, too, should there be a change in plans or a delay. Google says that basically any ticketed event should be detected.
This feature has already been available to the average Google account holder since earlier this year, but Google Apps users — who are using a Google account for work — typically have to wait a bit longer for new features. Google says the feature should roll out over the coming week to everyone with a Google Apps account, except for those in government.
