Google is rolling out a new feature that lets you snooze your desktop Google Calendar notifications.
Google has been giving us quite a few updates during the last few months geared towards helping people deal with their new work reality. I mean, WFH has been tough, I won’t lie. It’s really about the little things – i.e., the ability to split your workdays into segments on Google Calendar or add out-of-office replies for when you’re dealing with something at home.
Now, Google is rolling out a new feature that will let you snooze your Google Calendar desktop notifications – directly from the notifications themselves.
By default, snoozed notifications will reappear again one minute before the scheduled time, making it less likely that you will totally forget about it. You can also change the snooze timing in your Calendar settings and even “re-snooze” a notification for five more minutes. You can do this as many times as you like – until the meeting is over.
To use the feature – and see notifications on desktop – you need to have desktop notifications enabled and Google Calendar open in a tab. Also, you can only snooze notifications on Chrome browsers.
When it’s rolled out, this setting will be on by default – only if you already have desktop notifications enabled. You won’t be able to remove the snooze option, but you can instead change its timing. You could, of course, also turn off Calendar notifications altogether.
The feature is available to all Google Workspace customers and G Suite Basic and Business customers.
