Google Calendar celebrates 10th birthday with new goals feature

Reminders on Google Calendar.

Google Calendar turns 10 years old today. To celebrate, Google has added a new goals feature to the service.

As its name implies, the new feature lets you set a personal goal in Google Calendar, which then does the dirty work of finding time in your schedule so that you can hit your objective. Goals is mobile-only, a Google spokesperson tells me, so you’ll need to update your Android or iOS app accordingly from Google Play or Apple’s App Store.

To set a goal (it can be anything that occurs regularly), you’ll have to answer two important questions: “how often?” and “best time?”. Google Calendar does the rest: It will find the best windows to pencil in time for your new goal.
