Google Apps users will be pleased to learn that their Google Calendar will soon be able to automatically grab events from Gmail, and detect details like restaurant reservations, flights and hotels.

With Google Calendar’s new auto-populating features soon to be rolled out, packing flight, hotel, and restaurant information details, which is already available for Google Apps users using Google accounts for work, the benefits will now be rolled out to all Google Apps users, except Google Apps users for Government domains.

According to Google's official post:

"When an individual receives an email in Gmail with flight, hotel, restaurant, or ticketed event information, that event will be automatically added to their Google Calendar, complete with things like flight numbers and check-in times. Calendar will even update those events if plans change and a new email is received (for instance, when a flight is delayed or a reservation pushed back)."

According to Google, the feature will be enabled by default on mobile and desktop. For mobile, the feature is available on both iOS and Android.

Added events to Calendar from Gmail will only be accessible to calendar owners by default, meaning the events will not be visible even to those with delegated access. Additionally, Calendar owners can remove unwanted events individually. Other controls also allow users to disable the feature all at once and adjust visibility settings.

At launch, Calendar will come with an in-product screen on the device - web or mobile - first used to access the app. The app will explain how Gmail be forwarding events and details from their account to the app, as well as provide instructions on how to disable the feature under settings. As with other similar Google rollouts, rollout of this release will depend on the region of users, Users will be notified when they can access the new feature.
