Phishing attacks taking advantage of automatic Google Calendar events

We've all received a spam email telling us we've won millions of dollars or need to reset our online banking password. Although these are widespread, most messaging platforms and even browsers have learned to recognize them for our protection. Because of this, attackers are finding more sophisticated means to be more attractive: Besides using Google Docs to trick users, scammers have turned to Google Calendar and are relying on its automatic event creation setting to take advantage of people.

[Update: APK Download] Google Calendar gets the dark mode treatment

Google is continuing to roll out dark modes for its apps, most probably in preparation to match its upcoming OS-wide night theme.

[Update: APK Download] Google simplifies event creation in Calendar on Android, especially meetings with others

I've always hated sending out meeting invites from my phone, mostly because I find it much harder to see other people's calendars on my mobile device than on my computer. When I do manage to access whether they're available or not, I often find myself creating an appointment that overlaps another item. For these reasons, I'd usually prefer to wait to be in front of my computer to manage my calendar, but Google might make me change my mind with the improvements it's bringing to Calendar.

Android Messages can now send calendar files, in case you ever want to do that

I don't think anyone anywhere has ever said the phrase, "Let me text you that calendar file." Perhaps it was commonplace practice before the era of Google Calendar and other cloud-synced tools, but it's hard to see a case for texting calendars in 2018. Still, someone at Google must have thought that functionality would be useful, because it just arrived in Android Messages.

Google Calendar adds 'Propose a new time' option to meetings

Google Calendar is a pretty good way to manage your time, but since it's a core app in G Suite, "pretty good" isn't good enough. One of the many things potential meeting attendees might expect to be able to do in a business calendar app is suggest a different time, due to a conflict perhaps, but that hasn't been possible in Google Calendar up to now.

You might be sharing private events on Google Calendar without realizing it - here's how to fix that

Everybody uses Google Calendar (well, most people), and it's a tool many of us probably rely on every day to manage our lives, our work, and all the things we'd forget if our phones didn't remind us to do them.

Google Calendar has, then, also become a repository of highly personal information about us - our doctor appointments, our social plans, our whereabouts in general, and more. And because of that, giving a loved one or a close business associate access to our calendar only makes sense, right? After all, you want your spouse to be able to put dinner plans in your calendar or your coworker to be able to edit the location of a meeting if it should change at the last minute.
