What does the new page tell you about them (can you click the text)?

I haven't seen this hit my account yet.

Maybe it's only the feature that has been recently added to Google Calendar. You can add reminders for individual events and that includes email messages.

What kind of an event reminder would anyone need in Gmail?

You can have Google Calendar send email reminders for events.

I'm confused.

I bet it linked to Google Calendar.

Ah, looks like it's supposed to be a link to login to Google Calendar then.

This seems to be rolled out for me now. I see the link in Gmail that reads "New! Event Reminders"

Clicking on the new link gives me this login page:

Logging in, just brings me to my normal Google Calendar.

I just got it, too. Anything else? What does it do?

It's a promo (==ad) for Google Calendar that showcases the new event reminders.

I still didn't get it.
What's so " new " about this feature?

Jared Cherup [PersonRank 10]

I think they are just trying to promote Google Calendar's integration with Gmail. Someone that loves Gmail might like event reminders and have no knowledge that Google Calendar exists.

David Hetfield [PersonRank 10]

Could be.

<<promote Google Calendar's integration with Gmail>>
