How do I create an event via SMS?
To create an event via SMS, simply send a text message containing your event’s details to the shortcode “GVENT (48368).”
For example, if you send a message with something like “Shopping with Sarah at Monterey Market 5pm Saturday,” Google Calendar can figure out what you mean and pop the new event into your calendar.
