    Hi all -

    Thank you for submitting this idea! While I don’t have a target date on when we will offer a Google Meet integration, I can share your suggestions with the team to discuss further.

    Best,
    Hannah at Calendly

    Now that Google Meet with phone numbers is included in G Suite, it is gaining popularity very quickly.  Please add this functionality, it's very similar to your GoToMeeting integration.  Google has released an endpoint for it via their Calendar API, which is the API you guys are already using.

    I have set up my google calendar account to automatically create a meeting-link for all shared events. That way, people who schedule an appointment with me get a link in their calendar booking. It's a decent work-around.

    +1 would be great, I started to use Google Meet because is good, cheap and doesnt need to install any app. Meeting goes just in the browser.

    Google auto-generate link to Google Meet and include it to Event info. BUT my client will see it only in the calendar after scheduling in Calendly. It's UX trouble, cause you need to switch services/interfaces.

    It will be more convenient if my client/colleague will see the link exactly after scheduling on Calendly side.

    1. Guest select the time and date at Calendly.
    2. Guest see the link to the meeting when finishing the scheduling process.
    3. IF Guest wants to remind the link — he can get it at his Calendar.

    P.S. Be attentive and note that meeting field at Google Calendar is not included at other calendar tools (like Apple native calendar or other). We use Google Scripts to include meeting link to description info via API.

    Andrew,

    That's a great idea using Google Scripts to automate that!  Do you mind posting your script for doing that?

    I have a hack, guys! Follow these steps:

    1. Set up a meeting and click on the "add conference line" button in google cal to create a new google hangouts meet link. It should generate the URL and a phone number.
    2. Make sure to set this meeting as "free" (versus busy) as well as have it be an all-day meeting
    3. This step is IMPORTANT. Set the dates for this meeting for as long as you plan on using the code. For me, I set the event for 1 year long.
    4. Now, you can use that link for 1 year, anytime of the day. Essentially these settings above allow you to recycle a google hangouts meet link.
    5. NOW, pop that URL/phone number and code into a calendly location (that's typically where I put dial-in instructions). 

    I've been doing this for my team (6 separate calendly links for our different departments) and it's been working beautifully! 

    Hope this helps!!!
