Love Google Labs? Google Calendar is making one of its labs a fully supported feature, and it’ll allow you to work without being interrupted by bothersome alerts. Slack introduced Sign in with Slack, a new way for customers to sign up for your app using their Slack identity. And finally, Dropbox unveiled a new version of its product for the education market.

Stay Focused with Google Calendar Event Notifications in Your Browser – We’re happy to announce that starting today the Gentle Notifications lab is graduating to become a fully supported feature. You can now continue working in other tabs uninterrupted without losing track of your next meeting. Event notifications in browsers which support Web Notifications (like Google Chrome) will allow you to use native browser notifications instead of interruptive alerts.

Introducing Sign in with Slack – Today, we’re introducing Sign in with Slack, a way for customers to quickly sign up for your app using their Slack identity. More than just log in, Sign in with Slack keeps teams connected across the many apps they use for work. When a user signs up for your app using Sign in with Slack, they’ll be instantly connected to their teammates within your product.

Dropbox Goes Off to College with New Education Service – Dropbox launched a new service on Tuesday to help graduate students, college faculty and staff collaborate on files while they’re at school. Schools can now pay $50 per user, per year for Dropbox Education, a version of the cloud storage company’s premium offering for organizations that’s tailored to the cost-sensitive education market.
