Hey there,

 

Thanks for the assistance davidking

 

rapattack Could you try this command "Ok Google, add <event> to my calendar"? Then, check it by saying "Ok Google, what's in my calendar?" You want to make sure you're logged in to your personal Gmail account used to set up your Google Home Mini.  Also, make sure Personal results is turned on. This is required to get calendar information.

 

Best,

Alex

Do you see the events created on your speaker if you go to calendar.google.com?

Yes i forgot to update that i did notice that.

But they don't show up in the Google Calendar app on your phone? 

no

Is it set to show the same calendar you're adding events to? If they show up at calendar.google.com, they should definitely show in the Google Calendar app. There may be a default calendar app on your phone, that's not what I'm talking about here, I'm referring to the Google Calendar app from the Google Play Store.

i dont know what you mean by set to same calender. i dont know where i find that info. yeah no not showing. not any other calender. the google one

You can add/show multiple calendars in the app. Are you signed into the app with the same account you're logged into at calendar.google.com?

yes i have 2 gmail accounts and both show entries in the one app. i can look at either when i am on the desktop computer
