This would sound much interesting to you as Google is introducing a new feature this week that should help cut down on the number of spam invites in Google Calendar. So if you happen to use Google Calendar with any regularity, chances are you have received your share of unwanted invites. Google Calendar has tools to prevent spam, but a new one rolling out this month might be the best yet.

Do you know Google Calendar fights back against spam invites?

In order to fight off spam invites, Google added a new option to display events on your calendar if they come from senders you know. If you select this option, you will still receive the email events invitations from unknown senders, but they will only appear on your calendar if you choose to accept them. It’s not perfect, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Senders you know will include people in the same domain, people in your contact list, and people that you have interacted with before. These invites will continue to appear on your calendar automatically if you choose to use the new feature.

Also, allowing invites from known senders, you can still choose to automatically add all invites to your calendar or make it so that invitations only appear after you have responded to the invitation in your email. In other words, we now have three choices to make.

How to use the new Google Calendar feature

Google says that the known sender’s option started rolling out to everyone on July 20th. You might not see the feature yet, as it could take up to 15 days to show up. So if you want to see if the new feature has hit your account, visit Google Calendar in any browser. Click on the gear icon in the top-right corner and then click on Settings. Under the General tab, head to Event settings. Click on the Add invitations to my calendar drop-down menu and choose the option: Only if the sender is known.
