Google has announced an update to its Calendar platform that will enhance the interaction between Microsoft Outlook users and Google Calendar. Now, when a Microsoft Outlook user invites a Google Calendar user to a meeting event, the Outlook user's display name will be visible in the list of meeting attendees on Google Calendar. Previously, the Outlook user's name wouldn't appear at all in the attendees' list.

This change is part of Google's efforts to streamline the experience of cross-platform interactions and improve collaboration among users of different productivity tools. The update ensures that the Outlook user who organized the meeting will be identified as the meeting organizer in the Google Calendar event. This alteration provides a clearer understanding of the event and the roles of the participants.

This update is applicable to all Google Workspace customers as well as individuals with personal Google Accounts. It aims to create a more unified and user-friendly experience for those who frequently work across various productivity platforms.

This enhancement comes on the heels of recent improvements to Google Calendar. In the previous month, Google introduced enhanced meeting room suggestions, making it easier for users to identify suitable meeting locations. Additionally, a feature was rolled out that allows users to specify their working locations within the Calendar. This enables users to indicate where they are working during specific periods of the day, providing a more accurate reflection of their availability based on their physical location.
