Are you dependent on Google Calendar and Gmail? Do you get lots of event notifications sent to your Gmail address, such as information about flights, reservations, and paid events like movies and concerts?

You can configure the Gmail app so that when these emails arrive, it automatically creates them as events in your calendar.

Not only can you configure it for the web version of Google Calendar, but you can also do it for the mobile version.

And I’m going to show you how to do just that.

How to Enable Smart Features and View Events from Gmail

Terms

The only things needed for this to work are a Google account and the Gmail app installed on your mobile device. This feature works on both Android and iOS, but I’ll demonstrate it on a Pixel 6 Pro which runs on Android 13.

That said, let’s get to the setup.

How to enable smart features

The first thing you need to do is sign into your Google account in your default desktop web browser and go to Gmail.

Click on the Gear icon near the top right of the window. When prompted, click See All Settings. In the resulting window, scroll down to about halfway until you see the entry for Smart Features and Personalization. Click the check box for that feature to enable it.

Close the Gmail Settings window and you're done with the web version of Gmail.

When these features are enabled, any email you receive in your Gmail account that contains event details should automatically add that event to your Google Calendar.

If you find it’s impacting your schedule too much, you can always go back and turn it off. But if you like the convenience brought by this automation, this feature can be very useful. I have missed several events that have been sent via Gmail in the past. With this feature enabled, this no longer happens. And whenever an event is automatically added from Gmail that I don’t want on my calendar, I can manually delete it. This trade-off is well worth the small inconvenience associated with the convenience of automation.

Give this feature a try and see if it makes your mobile life a little more efficient and reliable.
