[Update: Now in Android app] Google Tasks gets timed reminders and recurring functionality

Google's Tasks to-do list service may be simple to the point of uselessness for many, and its old standalone web UI could die at any time, but it's still under active development. Proof for that comes today, as Google is rolling out a much-needed change to Tasks, giving us the option to add specific times of the day to tasks and set them to repeat. Note that these changes only seem to affect Tasks on the web for now. Google's Tasks and Calendar apps for Android haven't picked them up yet.

Google Home can now read your imported and iCal calendars

Multiple calendar support on Google Home has been available since last November, but the feature has been very limited. You couldn't choose your birthday or holiday calendars, ones created from a G Suite account, or imported calendars from URLs/iCal.

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.
