Change or remove event reminders

Google Calendar offers different options for receiving event reminders. You can choose to receive your event reminders via SMS messages, emails, or popups within Google Calendar itself. Note that when you make changes to your reminder settings, those changes will only apply to you. Invited guests or those who have access to the events will receive reminders according to their own settings.
