Google Plus Events : How to stop email notifications & Avoid Adding to Calendar

Google Plus, Like Facebook, Now also has Events which allows you to create some nice looking events and then invited people you want or in your circle.  So now this cool looking feature has also created some new settings, because of which, many of you might have started getting tons of event invites over email, which is just coming out of testing that your friends are trying out on their circle or even you.

I really wish the default should not be to show Invites from people I don’t have Circled. Kind of defeats the point of Circles.

The email notification allows you to get Invitation about any event which is updated, reminder about being invited and any activity on the events which you have created.  You might want to check first two options in general. Remember this only turns of Email Notifications, your Google Plus notifications will always work.

How to stop Google Plus Events Appearing in Google Calendar ?

Google Plus Events by default will automatically add to your Calendar, and you will be all of a sudden busy for everybody else. Thanks to the settings you might have.

In the Calendar settings page, you can choose to Automatically add invitations to my calendar where you can choose to get a reminder when you have selected Yes or May Be. You can select appropriately here if you do not want Google Plus Events to automatically reflect in your Google Calendar.Google Plus Event in Calendars


  1. Thank you! I almost planned on stopping using G+ because I was so annoyed by this standard stetting. You motivated me to take a deep breath and change them myself;)

  2. my issue is that events I’ve declined show up in 3rd party android calendar apps. I had no idea there were people who would want to keep declined events available. I guess I’m more decisive than most. Google Calendar needs a trashcan so that declined events can be recycled(automatically or manually) so that those of us who ARE sure we’re not going to fly to Europe for someone’s work party can just get rid of unnecessary data.
