To get you started, we’ve worked with the engineers from the Calendar and Docs teams on two highly requested features: a simple way to see your Google Calendar agenda and get an alert when you have a meeting, and a gadget that shows a list of your recently accessed Google Docs and lets you search across all of your documents right from within Gmail.
Welcome to another episode of roundups where we talk about the various happenings that we could not cover individually over the week, this week has definitely seen a lot of new exciting launches and improvements. Lets take a look at what this week had on offer.

I love Gmail not just because it’s one of the best email services available, but also for the fact that there are several new lab features which make it ever so useful and interesting. One such new Gmail Labs feature is called Mail Goggles, which will stop you from sending those late night emails and hate mails, you so regret sending when you get back to being sober.
Sometimes I send messages I shouldn’t send. Like the time I told that girl I had a crush on her over text message. Or the time I sent that late night email to my ex-girlfriend that we should get back together. Gmail can’t always prevent you from sending messages you might later regret, but today we’re launching a new Labs feature I wrote called Mail Goggles which may help.
Have you come across a scenario where you have sent a email but forget to attach a file with it? If you have been through the Oops, I forgot to attach the filescenario more than once, Gmail labs has added another cool feature called Forgotten Attachment Detector, that will alert you, if you forget to add a attachment to a email.
Many of us have experienced the embarrassment of having sent a message without attaching the file we said we were going to attach. Turn on the Forgotten Attachment Detector in Labs, and you’ll get an alert if you mention attaching a file but forget to do so.
Welcome to another roundup episode, where we cover roundup all the latest happenings we could not cover into a single post for your convenience, this week saw several interesting news and we are pretty excited to bring them to you.
