Making it easier to join meetings from third-party clients

Starting today, whenever someone uses a third-party CalDAV-based calendaring client to access an event on Google Calendar, we will add automatically generated text to the event’s description. This text will include instructions on how to join the event through Meet or Hangouts.

With this launch, people using the CalDAV API, such as those on Apple's calendar clients, no longer need to go to Google Calendar on the web to join their meetings.
