[APK Download] Google Calendar 5.5 Brings 'Find The Time' For Apps And Edu Accounts And An Inverted Status Bar

It's Wednesday, so you know what that means: updates! Today, Google Calendar is receiving some attention, with version 5.5 rolling out. The big change is Apps and Edu accounts gaining 'Find The Time', which... finds time for your meetings, unsurprisingly. Unfortunately, it's not available for normal Google accounts, which is a bit of a shame, but it's understandable given the privacy implications of having your calendar available to the public.

'Find The Time' is for people who have a lot of meetings. It looks at the schedules of the participants, finding a time when all are free to attend, even if they're in different time zones. If there is no time everyone can make, Calendar will try and reschedule other meetings to fit this one in.

Google & Microsoft Mutually Agree To Stop Tattling On Each Other To Regulators

Google and Microsoft, while not outright enemies, have been engaged in a number of public slap-fights over the years.

Microsoft has even been engaged in lawsuits against Android and, under threat of legal action, extracted (and may continue to extract) royalties from companies that make Android devices. Microsoft also helped lead the charge in what was likely the impetus that eventually caused the European Commission to file antitrust charges against Google last week.

We search online instead. And pretty soon, Google will start displaying live TV listings at the top of search results when you look for a show.
