1. Changes in Google Calendar

There will be few changes on the Google Calendar. Now users could select whether are they working from Home or Office to better schedule users’ event and activities.

Another changes is Time Insight. Time Insight helps users to understand more about how users spend their time in meeting and showing people who meet with you the most.
The Time Insight is trying to achieve something like Microsoft MyAnalytics or Outlook Insight, which both Microsoft and Google is working to make the users to be more productive at work with all the Insight analytics of users’ time. Worry not, all the details of Time Insight in Google Calendar will not be visible to users’ manager or others, unless the calendar is shared to people with manage sharing access” permission, then that user will have access to the Time Insight for that calendar.

This changes only applicable to: Google Workspace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education Plus, and Nonprofits users.
