Google Calendar is a no-cost time-management web app provided by Google. It launched on April 13, 2006, and exited the beta testing in July 2009. Users are required to have a Gmail Account in order to use the solution.

The front-end of Google Calendar, developed by Kevin Fox (who also developed Gmail and the second edition of Google Reader), is alike to computer calendar apps such as Microsoft Outlook or Ical on Mac Os X. The Ajax-driven front-end allows users to view, add, and drag-n-drop events from one date to another without refreshing the page. It supports view options such as weekly, monthly, and agenda. Users can quick add calendar events by typing standard English phrases, such as Dinner with Michael 7pm tomorrow. Users can also specify the number of days to show in their custom view mode.

Events are stored online, meaning that the calendar can be viewed from any location that has Web access. In the case of a user experiencing a hard drive glitch, it also means that no information is lost. The app can import Microsoft Outlook calendar files (. csv) and Icalendar files (. ics, the de facto open calendaring file format). Multiple calendars can be added and shared, enabling different levels of access rights for the users. This allows collaboration and sharing of calendars between workgroups. Basic calendars available for importing into one's account include those including national holidays of different countries. Users can also add live Icalendar Urls that update regularly.
