Google Maps is letting some users create public events

26 March 2019 3

Google Maps is reportedly giving some users an option to create a schedule for public events. This means with the help of a simple option, you’ll be able to add any event you’re going to have so as to allow your guests to have the access to it. It would come up as a good help for those who organize some frequent events or get-togethers, meet-ups. It will be easier to let your invitees know about the matter and location of your event from one place. For instance, for functions like wedding, we often share the location separately with our attendees but with the help of this feature, they would find all the information at one place.

Adding a public event just requires you to add the name of it, location and time, selecting a number of categories where your event falls in, describing it, and providing a website if any. The whole process of creating a public event is no different than adding an event in Google Calendar.

Android Police found out that Google is quietly giving at least some Android users the option to create public events. If you want to check if this option has landed to you then simply go into Contribute tab and create a party, a meet-up or any other public event, complete the description and select categories.


According to the screenshot shared by AP, I can't even see the Events tab. I am currently on version 10.12.1 (for users who must be wondering).
