Testing Out ‘Labs’ In Your Google Calendar

15Jul09

If you use Google Calendar then you may have noticed the little green labs icon up near your settings.  This is where Google is allowing you to test out some features that may or may not get pushed through as permanent fixtures in Google Calendar.  As of now there are six features:  Adding a background to your calendar, attaching Google Docs to an event (love that one!!), a world clock, jump to date, next meeting, and free or busy.

Once enabled, they sit on the right side of your calendar – and there doesn’t seem to be a way to rearrange them or move them to the left side.  I’m not going to explain what each one does here – you’ll need to watch the 3 minute screencast if you want to find out.  Or, you can just test them out yourself.  I recommend doing the former 🙂
