Get Ready To Jott To Your Google Calendar

Posted by telecommatt on December 4, 2007

I got a fun email from speech-to-text enabling company, Jott, tonight. Actually, if you use Jott and Gmail, you got it too, so it’s not like I’m special or anything. But I’m really excited about this new feature they’re adding– the ability to add to your Google Calendar using your voice. Seriously, how cool is that?!

Dear Gmail Jotters,

After three days of rain and snow, the sun is finally shining in
Seattle — just in time to celebrate the release of the official Google
Calendar Jott Link! If you’re out and about, and want to update
your calendar in a single step, just Jott!

To take a sneak peak at this application (we’re letting the word out tomorrow), visit Jott.com and add Google Calendar to your Jott Links.

When you Jott to your Google Calendar, simply leave a message like… “Meet Andy for lunch tomorrow at noon.”
Jott will transcribe your message, and lunch with Andy will automatically be added to your calendar for noon the next day.
This amazing, single step feature is the perfect complement to Google Calendar when you’re away from your PC.
For information on Jott Links and how they work, visit http://jott.com/jott-links/.

Cheers,

The Jott Team

I have to say, I’m really impressed with Jott. They keep rolling out these fantastic features, and I don’t think they get nearly enough credit for doing so. If you haven’t tried Jott, the basic idea is that you call up a phone number, say something, and tell Jott who to send it to. You can send reminders to yourself, birthday greetings to your dog, tweets to Twitter, posts to WordPress, and a bunch of other stuff I haven’t tried yet. When Jott delivers your message, it delivers the voice recording as well as a (surprisingly accurate) speech-to-text copy. And now, you can call up Jott and add stuff to your Google Calendar! (They’ve had this feature available for 30boxes for a while now, but I don’t use 30boxes, so it wasn’t a big deal to me at the time.)

I just added a few test events to my calendar via Jott, and it must already be live, because it worked. So, with the addition of Google Calendar, let me show you the functionality I have through Jott. I can send myself reminders. I can create blog posts. I can keep up with Twitter. I can add tasks to my Remember the Milk account. I can add to my Xpenser account. And now I can schedule events on my Google Calendar. And it’s free. You’ve got to be impressed by that,
