Google Calendar invites let you specify virtual attendance

Google Calendar invites let you specify virtual attendance

One aim of the Workspace suite for Google is to adapt to the “future of work,” including the growing popularity of hybrid working arrangements. As such, Google Calendar meeting invites will soon let you specify how you’re attending.

The “Yes” button at the bottom of an invite (on the web) will feature a new dropdown with accompanying icons for each option:

  • Yes
  • Yes, in a meeting room
  • Yes, joining virtually

Then, both the organizer and guests will be able to see how attendees are planning to attend the meeting in the event detail. This will help meeting attendees know what to expect when joining a meeting, and prepare accordingly. 

This is launching first in Google Calendar and later coming to Gmail invites. These attendance details will not be shared with Microsoft Outlook and other platforms. 

The capability starts rolling out tomorrow and will be fully available in the coming weeks for all Workspace customers. Google first previewed this feature last month alongside the news that Workspace is now available “for everyone” and getting a paid “Individual” tier.
