Google Calendar receives an update that will make its depressing lack of popularity more evident. When everyone rejects one of your invitations to events, the application will alert you and offer quick actions to solve the situation. Unfortunately, the options do not include "sulking in the corner" or "sending a passive-aggressive email".

This update was announced as part of G Suite earlier this month and is now part of the Android application (this is the only change). When you send an invitation rejected by all parties, the item in your calendar receives a small exclamation mark. Tap on it, and you can perform one of the following actions instantly.

  • Cancel the meeting : If you are the event organizer, you can delete the event. All other guests can remove it from their own calendar.
  • Reprogram the meeting : the organizers can reschedule the event, either manually or with "Find time". Guests (or organizers in domains without the "Search"). A "time available" feature can send emails to other guests to suggest reprogramming.
  • Discard an event: Until the event moves to a new time, users can discard seeing the indication marked for the meeting.

The update is live on the Play Store, and should work for regular accounts in addition to G Suite.
