Google Calendar is turning 10 today, and to celebrate, it’s getting a new feature to help you achieve your goals.
The aptly-named Goals feature in Google Calendar will help you find time in your schedule to complete whatever goal that you want. You can add a goal like exercise, do yoga, or learn a language, then tell Google Calendar how many times per week you’d like to work on that goal, how long each session should be, and the best time of day for the session. Calendar will then analyze your schedule and find time for you to work on your goal.
If you find that you don’t have time to work on your goal when Calendar suggests, you can reschedule a goal if it ends up conflicting with a new event or defer a goal for another day. The more that you use Goals, the better Calendar will get at analyzing your schedule and finding the perfect time for you to work on your goal.
With Goals, Google is working to help give you a push to achieve your goals by placing whatever it is that you want to do in your calendar. This keeps it in your mind and makes it more of an important task than if you just wait until you have free time to work on your goal, which should help you complete whatever your goal might be.
Goals are rolling out to Google Calendar on Android and iPhone, so keep an eye out for the feature in your app.
