Microsoft is now allowing its Cortana digital assistant to access Google Calendar data. The software giant has added a new Gmail connection to Cortana, which will enable the digital assistant to access Google Calendar data. If you’re a Windows 10 user that primarily uses a Gmail account, this new feature will make it easier for the assistant to access calendar appointments and trigger reminders across multiple calendars.
The new Google Calendar support also means you can use commands on Cortana-powered speakers like Harman Kardon’s Evoke device, to access calendar information. Cortana apps on platforms like iOS and Android will also be able to read and use the Google Calendar information, too. Microsoft’s Google Calendar support for Cortana is rolling out to Windows 10 PCs right now, and you can access it in the connected accounts section of Cortana’s notebook settings.
