More formats, languages, and filtering in Docs, Sheets, and Slides Android apps

February 3, 2016

 With this launch, you’ll be able to quickly create events in Google Calendar with smart suggestions for event titles, places and people, in more than 30 new languages. Available on Android and iOS.

Getting started

  • When you begin typing an event title, you’ll see matching suggestions -- choose one or keep typing.

  • Tap “at...” to add a location to your event and later get directions.

  • Tap “with...” To tag people in your event, so you can easily call or message them. This won’t send them an invite.

  • English only: Tap “on…” to easily specify the date, time and duration of the event
