Google Calendar SMS Notifications Cancelled

KNOW | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2018 

Google Calendar SMS Notifications cancelled

SMS notifications for Google Calendar events will be removed January 7, 2019. The notifications will cease to work on that date and instead in-app notifications will be the main method of reminding users of upcoming events. Google has confirmed that users that have the SMS notifications set up will be automatically notified in one of two ways. If a user has Calendar open or the Google Calendar app on a mobile device, they will receive in-app notifications. If a user has SMS notifications set up for new events, changed events, cancelled events or response, they will receive an email. If you have disabled calendar notifications, then head to Settings > Apps & notifications > Find the Calendar app > Turn notifications on. Google also stated that the Calendar API will be updated to reflect this upcoming change. - 9to5Google

Facebook Messenger Gets A Back to Basics Facelift

Facebook Messenger Gets A Back to Basics Facelift

Facebook is rolling out a redesigned Messenger focused on simplicity. Facebook’s Messenger was initially presented as a simple way for Facebook users to send messages while using Facebook on a desktop. After the expansion to a mobile app many additional features including games, bots and payment, were added which made the once simple Messenger feel bloated to users. The newly redesigned app is hoping to return the focus to chats and present a more streamlined experience by combining many of those extra features. The extras will still be accessible but will be hidden away where you can safely ignore them.

Google’s File on Me Was Huge. Here’s Why It Wasn’t as Creepy as My Facebook Data.

Though Google has far more data about us than Facebook, because we use it for not only our internet searches but also for our emails, calendaring, maps, photo uploads, video streaming, mobile phones and web browsers, Google has sidestepped controversy while Facebook has under fire for improperly leaking user data. To find out why, I downloaded a copy of all of the information that Google has on me and compared that data to what I already knew Facebook had obtained on me. What I found was that while my Google data archive was much larger than my Facebook file it was also packed with fewer unpleasant surprises and I was relieved to find out I could delete the data. In contrast, when I downloaded my Facebook data, I found that a lot of what I saw could not be purged.

Rumors point to cheaper iPads and MacBooks this year

Rumor has it that Apple may lower prices on iPads and MacBooks this year. The MacBook Air is also rumored to be receiving a less-expensive refresh. The latest report comes from DigiTimes, which has reported that Apple will launch a new 13.3-inch “entry-level” MacBook late in Q2 this year, though its screen size suggests it may be an updated version of the Air, since the MacBook only comes with a 12-inch display. The timeline also matches with WWDC in June.

Asana for Gmail: The Best of Both Worlds

Asana has been working with the G Suite team and just released the Asana for Gmail add on. With this add-on you can turn your emails into actionable tasks that are tracked in Asana without leaving your inbox. We all spend a significant part of our day in email and these emails often come in fast and furious. So you turn your attention to the new email and forget about the one you were working on. Emails fall through the cracks like this all the time and it can quickly derail work.

Email wasn’t built for tracking to-dos or managing projects and that’s where Asana comes in. Asana is built to help teams plan, manage, and track work and by combining the two in this new Asana for Gmail add-on, you’ll be able to send emails to Asana and get the best of both worlds. Directly within Gmail, you can now turn an email into a task, assign it to yourself or a teammate, set a due date, add it to a project, and include attachments. Once an email and a task are linked, any actions taken in either Gmail or Asana will automatically appear in the Asana sidebar in Gmail or the task in Asana. This add-on will help you turn any email communication into actionable work. https://blog.asana.com/2017/10/emails-tasks-gmail-asana-integration/
