Many users have reported an odd glitch within the Google Calendar mobile app over the previous few days. The app appears to be creating random non-existent all-day events based on the content of users’ Gmail messages.
As 9to5Google (which reported on the news earlier today) notes, various forms of emails including delivery notifications, purchase confirmations and newsletters seem to seem as all-day events on the calendar. A bit Edge employees who use the Google calendar app are experiencing this glitch. “It’s like finding land mines on my calendar,” complained one author (whose calendar is screenshotted below).
Google has not yet responded to a request for comment.
