Google Calendar Adds Hybrid Attendance Option

A new RSVP option is now available in Google Calendar. 

To accommodate the hybrid workplace, Google is adding an RSVP option for users to indicate whether they are attending meetings remotely or in-person. According to Google’s announcement

Both the organizer and guests will be able to see how attendees are planning to attend the meeting in the event detail. This will help meeting attendees know what to expect when joining a meeting, and prepare accordingly.

RSVP options are only available to contacts also using Google Calendar (not Outlook or Thunderbird) and do not yet appear in Gmail calendar invitations.

This feature is scheduled to start making an appearance in our Google domain on July 22, 2021.
