When Google Home first rolled out as a serious competitor against the Amazon Echo, users immediately spotted one glaring omission. Unlike the Echo, it was impossible to use multiple calendars with Google Home.
That can be a real pain. A lot of us use different calendars depending on the device we’re using, so it’s nice to have the option to consolidate those when using a smart home assistant.
Luckily, the search giant started offering an update last year that fixed the problem, letting people manage their multiple calendars with Google Home.
It’s not hard to do, but you’ll need to know what you’re looking for. Here’s a quick guide to manage your multiple calendars with Google Home.
- Open the Google Home app.
- On the menu to the left, click on More Settings.
- Click on Calendar.
- You’ll see a list of your calendars. Enable the ones you want to access through Google Home.
That’s all there is to it. Once you’ve enabled your preferred calendars, Google Home will draw from those when you ask about upcoming events or get your “My Day” brief.
