Hi, longtime apple user here so forgive my n00bness. I grabbed two nest minis to control smart devices at home, all is well but to fully integrate it was simpler to switch to google calendar even on my iPhone.


So basic question I am really struggling with is how on earth do I get all Facebook events to sync with the cal>? I went online logged into my google account on a PC, imported the cal from FB and the events showed but now I have clicked attending new events on FB they dont show.


iOS calendar is one click and all future events are linked, its really starting to grind my gears.

Google has this.




Adding Facebook events to Google Calendar




  1. Click Events on the left side of your homepage.
  2. Right click the "Upcoming events" link at the bottom right and choose "Copy link address"
  3. Then go to your Google Calendar webpage.
  4. Click the + next to the calendars.
  5. Select From URL from the menu and paste the "upcoming events" link there.

From memory the ical feed method can take up to 24 hours for an event to appear in your calendar.

Or this which may do all (haven't tried it)





Thanks, I tried this exact method earlier and it worked but then when I clicked attending some future events that are coming up it didn't push through to my Google cal. I have linked with my icloud cal now as that had all my events in it. Apple is one click in Calendar settings, I'm very surprised googles is so hard.
