Calendar for mobile web browsers

You can use Google Calendar on almost any smartphone without downloading an app. Just go to www.google.com/calendar in your mobile web browser. But if you have an Android phone or iPhone, it's simpler to sync with an app instead.

Get started

  1. Open the web browser on your phone or tablet (the same app you use to visit other websites).
  2. Go to www.google.com/calendar.
  3. Sign in to your Google Account.

After you sign in, you should see your Google Calendar events. Your events are synced automatically so you can access your calendar from any mobile device or computer.

View your calendar

View your day or month

Touch Day or Month at the top to switch between Day and Month view. Use the left and right arrows to go to other months and days. While in Month view, touch a day to see a list of the day's events.

You can always touch Today at the top to jump back to the current date.

View events while offline

If you recently viewed an event in Google Calendar on a mobile browser, you'll still be able to see your event when you don't have access to an Internet connection. You'll only be able to view events, not add or edit them.

Note: Offline access may not be available for all browsers or phones.

Data stored on your device

When you access Google Calendar on your mobile browser, data may be stored on your device for improved performance. You may be able to access and clear this information in your browser's settings. For example, you can clear data for individual websites with Chrome for Android using these directions. Visit the help center for your browser to learn how to clear website data stored on your device.

Create & edit events

Add a new event
  1. Go to www.google.com/calendar in your mobile web browser.
  2. In the top right corner, touch the plus icon +.
  3. Type in a title and choose the date and time.
  4. You can invite someone to your event by typing the person's email address under "Add a person to this meeting." They'll receive an invitation email.
  5. When you're done, touch Save at the top.

Note: You may not be able to add events if your web browser isn't supported. You can try downloading another popular web browser.

Edit and delete events
  1. Go to www.google.com/calendar in your mobile web browser.
  2. Open the event you want to edit by going to the day, then touching the event.
  3. To edit the event, touch Edit in the top right. Make changes and touch Save.
  4. To delete the event, touch Delete in the top right.

Settings

Hide or show individual calendars

If you have multiple calendars in your account, you can choose whether to hide or show each calendar. When you hide a calendar, the events on that calendar won't show up when you view your schedule.

  1. Go to www.google.com/calendar in your mobile web browser.
  2. Touch Settings at the bottom.
  3. To hide a calendar, uncheck the box next to it. To show a calendar that was hidden, check the box next to it.
  4. Touch Save in the top right.
Notifications

The mobile browser version of Google Calendar doesn't support notifications. However, if you'd like to get notifications on your phone, you have a couple of options:

Set up SMS reminders

You can get text message notifications sent to your phone to remind you of your events.

  1. Open Google Calendar on a computer.
  2. Follow these directions to set up SMS notifications.

Sync with an app instead

If you sync with an app instead of using the mobile browser, you should be able to get notifications directly on your phone. Learn more about syncing with mobile.

Troubleshooting

If you get an "Invalid certificate" or "Could not verify domain" error, or are generally experiencing problems accessing Google Calendar, your mobile browser may not be supported. Here are a few things you can try:

  • Download a different browser on your phone.
  • Make sure cookies are turned on for your browser. Look in the settings of your mobile browser.
  • Instead of using a mobile browser, sync with a mobile app.
