Third-party conferencing available in Google Calendar
We’re adding native support for third-party conferencing tools in Google Calendar with Calendar add-ons. These add-ons allow a user to create, view and join a third-party video conference directly from a Calendar event without requiring a Chrome extension or download.
Users can simply click a link in the Calendar invite to join on web or mobile.
We’re launching with four partners whose add-ons are available in the G Suite Marketplace, with more to come in the future:
- Cisco (Webex integration)
- Dialpad (UberConference integration)
- LogMeIn (GoToMeeting integration)
- Vonage (Vonage integration)
G Suite admins can install these add-ons for their entire domains or selected organization units. End users can also install these add-ons directly.
Once installed, users can use add-ons to seamlessly add third-party conference details to newly created Calendar events. Other guests on these events will be able to see the third-party conferences and join them, even if they don’t have those particular add-ons installed.
Learn more about third-party conferencing add-ons in the Help Center.
