    • “When’s my first meeting today?”
    • “Where’s my next event?”
    • "What’s my agenda for August 1?"

Cancel or reschedule an event

On your phone or tablet, you can ask your Google Assistant to cancel or reschedule an event, like a meeting.
Important: This feature is only available in the US and English.
To cancel an event, say:
  • "Cancel my next meeting."
  • "Cancel my meeting with Andrew today."
  • "Cancel my 4 PM meeting."

To reschedule an event, say:

  • "Reschedule my next meeting."
  • "Reschedule my meeting with Ashley at 2 PM."
  • "Reschedule sync meeting."

Add a shared calendar

Important: In some languages, you can use your Assistant to add events to a shared calendar instead of your main calendar. Under “Default calendar to create events,” select the one you want.

You can send an email to a meeting on Calendar with Google Assistant on your Android phone.

To send an email, say something like:
  • "OK Google, send an email to my next meeting and tell them I'll be late."
  • "Send an email to my next meeting and say I can't attend."
