Google Chat adds Calendar shortcut for fast event creation

After announcing new unthreaded room last week, Google Chat is now adding Calendar integration for streamlined event creation.

Google Chat’s compose field today lets you quickly add or take an image, browse files in Drive, and start a Meet call. Calendar now joins to become the fifth option.

Tapping on mobile will open the full Google Calendar app directly to the event creation field, with people in that conversation automatically added as attendees. Online, the Google Workspace side panel will slide out with the same information pre-filled

This feature is currently rolling out to Chat in the Android Gmail app as well as the Chat Android mobile app and will begin rolling out to the Chat in Gmail on the web and Chat iOS app in the coming weeks.
