Other updates were based a new events app, called Google Events. According to Google, the events app works before, during and after a party unlike other event organization toolkits, which "bail when you need them the most”.


“Inviting someone to your home, your wedding or your favourite restaurant is a deeply personal act. You’re handpicking who’ll be in the room, after all, so invitees should feel part of something special,” says Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President in a blog post.

Google Events app offers:

  • Cinemagraphic themes for your beach trip, weekend brunch, or baseball game (and a whole lot more)
  • The ability to attach a personalized video greeting from YouTube
  • Unique animations that make your invites a joy to receive


Google events also appear in Google Calendar automatically, and guests’ updates arrive instantly in the stream. The end result is a useful and beautiful place to manage your party.

With Google Events app, users can visit their event page after the party is over and they'll see everyone’s pictures and comments in chronological order. Users are also allowed to browse by popularity, photographer or photo tag with a few clicks.
