New features on Google Calandar like “out of office” and customisable “working hours” would let users indicate their work-time availability to others and improve digital presence, the company said on Thursday.

Google Calendar will now be able to automatically decline meetings that would occur during “out of office” period. Users will also have the chioce to customise the “decline message.”

“When creating an event on the web, simply select the ‘out of office’ entry type. The ‘out of office’ object will have a different look on the Calendar grid, signalling to others that you’re unavailable,” the G suite team wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.

Additionally, with “working hours”, users would be able to “protect their personal time from their work time”.

Users could set their working hours to one interval for all week days, or for each day, separately.

The new features will be available to users of all G suite editions within two weeks.

“Based on your timezone and past scheduling patterns, Google Calendar can now infer your working hours. You may see a prompt asking you to set them, and you can further customise them as needed,” the post added. (IANS)

Google Play on Wear OS is slightly better now as the tech giant has given it a design facelift with some refreshing tweaks.

Wear OS or Wear OS by Google, which was previously known as Android Wear has been given a new design as Google attempts to improve it.

Spotted on Reddit and by one of our tipsters, Google appears to have widely rolled out a Play Store update for all Wear OS users. At first glance, it’s not a radical redesign, but it makes a lot of changes for the better.

First, it ditches the pull-down menu that’s been very annoying for quite some time. In the previous design, the menu indicator often covered the search button, 9to5Google reported on Wednesday.

Wear OS users may be able to spot the differences, where they now have My Apps, Accounts, and Settings sections at the bottom of the main page, rather than within a hidden pulldown menu.

The rest of the Play Store for Wear OS doesn’t appear to have changed much. App listings, for example, are basically unchanged, but I think they now have a darker background, the report added. (IANS)
