How to remove or put birthdays in Google calendar


put your birthday on google calendar

Do you forget people’s birthdays? Me too. The truth is that, if it weren’t for Facebook, I wouldn’t know about my friends’ birthdays or those of some relatives, even. Yes indeed, Facebook is not a reliable source. There are many people who registered on Facebook with a false date of birth and, moreover, surely not everyone you know is active on this social network.

The best way to remember all the birthdays of your loved ones is by using a calendar app that keeps track of them for you. If you have an Android, you don’t even have to download an application for it, since Google Calendar (the calendar app that comes pre-installed on almost all Android devices) allows you to save birthdays so you never forget to congratulate to your friends and family.

Here’s how to add or remove birthdays in Google Calendar in every possible way.

In this way, birthdays will be added as one more date in your main calendar, as long as this Facebook calendar that you just added is activated.

By the way, Facebook birthdays they should sync with your google calendar automatically with this trick (if you add a new friend to Facebook, their birthday will be added to the calendar), although we have not been able to confirm this.

Can you put birthdays in the Google calendar without the Contacts app?

Of course yes. You will only have to add it manually as one more event on your calendar in this way:

  • Open the app of google calendar on your mobile.
  • Push the button “+” from the lower right corner.
  • Select the option events.
  • Title something like this: Birthday of [Nombre de la persona].
  • Next, add the birthday date.
  • Change the “Does not repeat” option to “Every year”.
  • Finally, you can add a description and a color to the event, set a notification so that Google reminds you days or minutes before the dateadd a location and even attach a file.
