Early last week Google teased us with rumors of a new Calendar app update that automatically added locations from Google Maps. The update finally arrived to my device this morning (I could have sideloaded the app, but I was lazy).
Admittedly, the new feature isn’t that revolutionary — I kind of thought, “duh, why isn’t this already a feature” — but will show just how important getting on Google is. At least that’s my opinion of what the whole thing means.
I added a couple of doctor’s appointments and other locations simply by clicking the suggestion.
I did notice that the autocomplete feature might not be available for group events that you don’t control. For instance, I have an upcoming planning meeting for a charity event. I didn’t create the invitation, so I couldn’t add a location. However, I have another event that I created with other attendees where I could use the autocomplete feature.
The autocomplete feature will simply add more usefulness to Google Calendar.
