Google Calendar updated with Maps location autocomplete and improved events searching

In case the run through the end of the year has you struggling to keep track of all the festivities, Google updated its Calendar with some helpful new features to maintain order. First, when you create an event, the process is now a bit quicker thanks to autocomplete predictions from Maps which then allows invitees to quickly access directions from that trusty link we all rely on. Searching in Calendar has also been improved as digging for reminders about important dinners or by keying in contacts will instantly show the most pressing items -- kind of like Gmail's search box. Finally, guest lists for events automatically update for groups, keeping both relevant info in and unwanted details out of your planner. No longer getting those cluttering updates on the lunch you'll miss while visiting Nana is always a welcome improvement, if you ask us.
