We saw many such changes which work under Google and that show some extra-ordinary features. Now add this feature in your list where your contact persons are able to know where you are.

Suppose you are on your vacation with your family and you have not informed your friends, colleagues or your clients then no need to worry. Now Google has something for you as they introduced a feature for G-Suits users where it will show pop-up notification to your contact persons in Gmail and Hangout Chat. It will create the notification like “The person you are trying to reach is not available”. This feature is especially for those who are Google’s enterprise customers. Normal Gmail users can’t use it.

‘Out of office’ status will also appear on Hangout chats when your contact person will try to reach you. If you don’t want to share on hangout or any other G-suit app then you can disable sharing through Calendar setting ‘Access Permission’.
