Quickly see your next meeting right in your menu bar with Next Meeting.
The meetings come from the built-in macOS Calendar app — so it works with Google, iCloud, Exchange, Facebook, Yahoo, CalDAV, and local calendars.
Meet links now open in your default web browser (instead of preferring Chrome).

This app is invaluable! I love being able to see what my next meeting is with just a quick glance at my menu bar. Makes you wonder why Apple didn't build this into Mac OS.
I just noticed that the location for the next meeting is now displayed in the dropdown, which was the one missing feature from this app. Very nice! It would be super cool if the list of meetings also showed their location, but having it for the next meeting is huge!!
Close to great but missing usability
I can't find a way to narrow the appointments it shows me besides option-clicking individual appointments. Only some meetings and calls are worth worrying about but with a full calendar, it gets cluttered and not useful. Give us an option to quickly check off the critical meetings for the day in the option-click view.
It also doesn't let you choose the data:time format. If the OS is set to 24-hour, why does this app only show 12-hour times? Bad app behavior to override the OS format and not give any options.
It may not be their fault, but colors for calendars and appointments would be nice too. If I've noted calendar entries with colors/categories in Outlook I'd love to see that reflected or even keeping the different calendars as different colors on the pull-down would be good.
Good effort, but not useful unless you have only a few appointments to look out for. But in that case, do you really need something like this?
Essential for anyone meeting over VC
Next Meeting is my most effective outboard brain these days: It tells me how much time I have to focus when my next meeting starts. When it does, I can easily pull up the meeting. (Side note: If you get annoyed by zoom opening a browser tab, I recommend using Hammerspoon & the URLDispatcher spoon, which lets you invoke the zoom meeting-starter app immediately if a "zoom meeting" URL is opened).
Two suggestions that would make Next Meeting absolutely fantastic: One, I would love to have some more visual separation between past meetings and the present / upcoming ones.
Two, if I have conflicting meetings starting at the same time, NM picks a seemingly-random one, and that gets confusing quickly. It would be great if it could show all meetings currently scheduled & let users select the one to connect to.
