The first major change to Sunrise Calendar since its acquisition from Microsoft is an interesting one to say the least. In order to make scheduling easier, the app now comes equipped with its own calendar keyboard to schedule appointments on the fly.
There is a new feature called “Meet” that basically changes your devices keyboard so that you can at an instance see what appointments are available without having to change apps. The app goes as far as letting you send multiple options to your friends, family, and colleagues as far as possible appointments and as soon as they decide it will automatically update the appointment for you. This is meant to take ease of scheduling one-step further to save you time and also frustration between switching apps and finding times.
Admittedly as cool as it is, I was personally struggling to get my Galaxy Note 4 to switch between the Samsung Keyboard and the Sunrise Keyboard. After setting it as the default option the keyboard did come up and work as promised.
To activate the feature, you must go into the settings. You will see the option there for “Meet” and you can go in there to activate it. Once it is activated you should be able to switch easily between keyboards and insert information appropriately. This is a clever idea and is a great first step since Sunrise has been engulfed by Microsoft. Lets hope that the innovation keeps moving forward.
You can download Sunrise Calendar for free through the Google Play Store.
