There’s some interesting functions being added to Google services and so far, I really like them.
The latest functions enable quick creation of certain content items, through use of the new “.new” domain name. To make it work, there’s a bit of a catch – you are required to be logged into your Google account on that PC. But let’s face it, most of us are in our browsers so it’s not a huge issue.
So, what .new things can you create? The first option is new calendar entries, which you can create at https://cal.new :

It would seem the speed and convenience of adding items quickly is the current flavour from the team at Google. If you guys are reading this and looking for suggestions: I’d love mail.new and reminder.new to be next please!
What functions would you like to have quick access to through the .new function?
