Use Google Maps in the quick access panel on Google Calendar

General information

You can now use Google Maps in the quick access panel. This means that you can use Google Maps to view and research location information on the same screen, which can make it easier for you to:

  • View location details like location, opening hours, and user reviews.
  • Make sure you're adding the correct location to the Calendar event.
  • Get directions and travel times to plan ahead of your trip to an upcoming event venue. You can add trips to your Calendar to help you arrive on time by knowing when to depart. Predicted traffic and transits at future event times are used for better estimates of travel time.

 

The quick access side panel can already help you view your Google Calendar while in other Google Workspace apps, take notes, manage your tasks, and more. With Maps in the side panel, you'll be able to see more information without switching contexts or using multiple tabs. This will make it easier for you to plan and attend events on time.
