General availability

Cron is now available for everyone! Read more on our blog about this milestone and our continued commitment to building the next-generation calendar.

We’ve removed the waitlist, and everyone can sign up at We should be able to handle the traffic now. You can still invite friends or teammates directly (Ctrl/ K > Invite to Cron…).

With general availability (GA), we’re releasing a long list of improvements across all platforms: better event blocking, more robust offline detection, updates to time zones, and much more.

Other improvements

  • Adds event previews in Arc browser for Cron for web.
  • Adds command (Ctrl/ K) to join conferencing of upcoming or selected event.
  • Improves reliability of the iOS widget refreshing data.
  • Improves searching time zones with accented characters, e.g., typing “montreal” or “geneva” matches the “Montréal” and “Genève” time zones respectively.
  • Improves reminder presets for all-day events (e.g., “1 day before” instead of “5 mins before”).
  • Improves auto-blocking events on calendar by removing the block for declined events.
