Never Miss a Game or Birthday: Google Calendar Adds Sports & Birthday Schedules

Here’s a great new idea from Google: sports schedules for pro and college sports teams, integrated into Google Calendar.

The feature was rolled out yesterday, and allows users to browse for their favorite teams (including international soccer and rugby clubs) in a variety of sports and see their schedules alongside other meetings, tasks, and reminders.

If you’d like to activate a calendar, you should see a “New: Sports Calendars” link on the top right of Google Calendar that you’ll want to follow. From there, once you’ve found your team, click “subscribe” and that team’s games are automatically added as events in their respective date and time.

Along with the sports update, there’s now also a birthday calendar, which will “add all of your contacts’ birthdays to Google Calendar. Data is pulled from your Gmail contacts and your friends’ Google profiles.”
