Use the UberConference Add-On for Google Calendar to schedule meetings with details such as conference URL, phone number, or PIN automatically inserted for you.
Some additional benefits of the UberConference Add-On include:
- Ability to use schedule meetings in UberCofnerence from any browser, not just Chrome
- Ability to add UberConference details to an invite from the Google Calendar app on iOS and Android
Let's take a look at how the UberConference Add-On for Google Calendar works.
Configure the UberConference Add-On
From Google Calendar, navigate to Get Add-Ons and search for UberConference.
Select UberConference for Google Calendar, then install the add-on.
From the UberConference dashboard, navigate to Account > Integrations and select Connect Account alongside Google Calendar.
You'll see a request for UberConference to access your Google Account's calendar. Select Allow, then return to UberConference.
If you go to Account > Integrations, the Google Calendar integration will display a connected label after authentication completes.
Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) Accounts
Google Workspace Admins and users in an organization may notice that Google Meet appears as the default videoconference option.
In order to change this, navigate to the Google Admin Console and select Apps > Google Workspace > Calendar > Sharing Settings. You're able to turn off Google Meet as the default and instead choose UberConference after installing the UberConference Add-On for Google Calendar.
Create Meeting with UberConference
From Google Calendar, create an event and select Add Video Conferencing > UberConference.
From the Google Calendar app, select the Plus ('+') icon > Event.
Enter any details related to the event and select Add Conferencing > UberConference.
UberConference will then insert the conference URL and phone number, which Google Calendar displays alongside other event-related information.
Sync Meeting Title
UberConference and Google Calendar will sync meeting titles. Create an event in Google Calendar, and its title will carry through to UberConference.
