Google Calendar has a great update for hybrid workers

Guess what's in the latest bag of tricks from our pals at Google?

They've jazzed up Google Calendar with a slick new feature that could seriously amp up your daily grind – especially if you're in the hybrid work game.

Remember when they dropped the option to share your work location with your colleagues back in 2021? Well, guess what? They've given it a turbo boost.

Now, you can tag multiple locations for any given day on your calendar. Whether it's a split shift between your home office and HQ or a day spent on the go, Google's got your back.

Imagine this: you're clocking in at the office for the morning, and then you're off to dazzle a client in the afternoon. Thanks to this neat feature, your co-workers will be in the loop about exactly when and where they can track you down.

Google's mantra is all about working smarter, not harder. They've got our backs, knowing a ton of us are still doing the remote shuffle or trying to balance office and remote hours. This new feature is tailor-made for the hybrid work tribe.

But, here's the kicker. Only folks with a Workspace account get to dive into this perk. That's you if you're on the list below:

  • Google Workspace Business Standard/Plus
  • Enterprise Standard/Plus
  • Education Fundamentals/Standard/Plus
  • The Teaching and Learning Upgrade
  • Nonprofits

Sorry personal account holders, you're not invited to the party just yet.

Here's the nifty part – the working location jazz is turned on by default. But, if you'd rather keep your hide-and-seek skills sharp (hey, no judgment – we all need those work zone-outs), you can easily switch it off.
