A couple of months ago, Google's Calendar app received an update that allowed users with an Apps or Edu account to schedule meetings with multiple people based on when everyone was available. While Google Apps users are often last on the pecking order, this time it was regular users who didn't have access to the new "Find a time" feature, likely due to privacy concerns (it's one thing to share your work calendar with your coworkers, but entirely another to share your personal calendar with anyone with your email address).
The newest version of the Google Calendar app doesn't yet let regular users resolve schedule conflicts with other people, but it does the next best thing by solving conflicts with yourself. It's still just a first step, but it should help people with particularly full schedules quickly find time for an event without having to comb over their busy calendar in search of a free time slot.
The new version of the app should be rolling out to users over the next few days, but if you're not into waiting, you can download version 5.5.7 directly from the link below.
The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
