Gmail’s rather slick ability to automatically add events to Google Calendar is finally available for Google Apps customers. 

Nearly nine months after it launched for the consumer version, Gmail will now mine your messages for flight, hotel, travel, or other ticketed information and automatically create an event in your Google Calendar.

The feature is rolling out for the Google Apps version of Google Calendar on web, Android, and iOS. In a blog post, Google says you’ll get a notification in Calendar the first time there’s a new event that’s been pulled from your email.

You’ll see a notification about the new feature inside your Google Calendar.

The new capability is rolling out on Google’s servers, so there’s no app update required for the Android or iOS versions.

Why this matters: This is a tremendously useful feature and a huge time saver. However, the consumer version launched in November of last year, so it’s been quite the wait for the feature to go live for paid customers. If you don’t like the automatic integration, you’ll be able to disable it inside the Google Calendar settings.
