Google Calendar ending SMS notifications on 27 June

Google recently announced that it will be ending SMS notifications for Google Calendar from 27 June 2015.
If you have SMS notification turned on, you’ll see pop-up notifications for your event on your mobile phone’s calendar app or on your computer browser that has Google Calendar opened.
I guess this signifies the end of an era. SMS notifications was great back in those days when not everyone has a smartphone. With Smartphone everywhere that can notify users of upcoming events, there is really no need for SMS notifications.
Although personally I think I’ll miss the SMS notifications. Call me old skool but I still feel that a SMS notification attracts more attention than an app notification. But that’s just me.
