New Google Calendar makes scheduling meetings easy (for Android users)

The American electronics giant has announced a new feature, "Find a Time", which examines schedules and suggests times when everyone is free for meetings and get-togethers.

Life admin can be tough, but a new feature Google has introduced to its Calendars hopes to help make workplace scheduling easier.

Called "Find a Time", it requires you to punch in who you want to have a meeting or get-together with and takes every thing from there. It looks through your schedule and those of the people you want to meet with and suggests a time where everyone is free.

"'Find a time' helps you find meeting times that work for everyone -- even if they're in different time zones -- based on their availability and the times they usually have meetings," explained Google product manager Stella Schieffer in a Wednesday blog post. "If there are no times that work, Calendar will look at which conflicting meetings can most easily be rescheduled."

The app is currently only available on Android devices, though the blog post said that the feature will eventually come to iPhones and web browswers.
