The next time a Google Calendar invite lands in your inbox, you might notice that it looks a little different. google announced on Monday that it updates the emails it sends for calendar events, tweaking them to look more modern, and quickly surface important information.
Google says that if an organizer updates an event, the new design will show the old information as well. For example, if an event changes from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM, you’ll see the 1:00 PM start time crossed out below the new information to give you a better idea of exactly what’s happening with your schedule. Google also tells you at the very top what has changed about an event, so you immediately know what to look for.
Google says this change should roll out to everyone by the end of the month. While those who manage their calendars through third-party tools like Fantastical or Outlook probably won’t get much out of it (my email app doesn’t even display these kinds of emails, but turns them into a calendar view), for those who use the Gmail web interface, it should be a nice little quality of life improvement.
