Google has acquired Timeful which is a startup that focuses on easier scheduling. The statement posted by Alex Gawley, Director of Product Management at Google, The Timeful team has built an impressive system that helps you organize your life by understanding your schedule, habits and needs. You can tell Timeful you want to exercise three times a week or that you need to call the bank by next Tuesday, and their system will make sure you get it done based on an understanding of both your schedule and your priorities. We’re excited about all the ways Timeful’s technology can be applied across products like Inbox, Calendar and beyond, so we can do more of the work for you and let you focus on being creative, having fun and spending time with the people you care about.
The Timeful service will eventually be integrated into Google apps. With Google’s Inbox, you can already group your messages into a Bundle and rescheduling is easy within the app. Timeful was acquired to make this process even better for users because it prioritises your activities and can work with all major calendar platforms including Microsoft. This app easily does for you some of the things an assistant/secretary would normally do for you because it even helps you create time to get things done.
