    Around the same time last year, Google introduced shortcuts that give you a way to create a new Doc, Sheet, Slide, Site or Form in just a few seconds. If they've been making your life easier, then you may also like Google's new shortcut for Calendar. Now, you can add new Calendar events simply by typing "cal.new" or "meeting.new" on your browser's address bar. It opens the full event edit page, which you can traditionally access by tapping the "Create" button and then "More Options." There, you can add a title for your event, its location, duration, notes and other details, as well as set notifications for it.

    I reckon this is a big deal, it's a good use case for direct navigation.

    Makes me think what other .action extensions could be created.
