Google’s Calendar app on Android TVs is a great way to schedule meetings and events.
It has a full calendar view, which is handy for taking notes, making lists, and keeping a list of upcoming events.
The app also has a few other features that make it a great time-management app.
But it has a limitation: it doesn’t let you do anything with calendar appointments.
That’s because Calendar on Android doesn’t allow you to make appointments for events, even if you have the ability to.
You can’t make appointments in your calendar.
You don’t have to, because Google doesn’t think of Calendar on iOS as a calendar app.
And that’s where the problem comes in.
Google says you can’t schedule an appointment with Calendar on a TV.
And it doesn’ mean you can make a scheduled appointment, either.
It just means you can only do it if you’re in the calendar view.
So if you don’t want to schedule an event, you’re out of luck.
So, to make Calendar on your Android TV a calendar-ready experience, you’ll need to use the Calendar app in its own dedicated place.
That means that you can no longer make appointments.
To do that, open up Calendar on the Home screen, select “Apps”, and then “Settings”.
From here, you can tap the Calendar button, then tap “Change” and select “Show All”.
Here you’ll see a list with the calendar options that Calendar supports.
You’ll see two options, “Notify” and “Notifications”.
To make a Notification, go to the Notification Settings, tap the “Notification” option, and then tap the blue “Edit” button.
If you don’ want to change the default notification sound, you need to click the “None” checkbox.
If the notification isn’t displaying, you won’t see any notification sound.
Tap the “Edit icon” icon next to the notification icon.
The “Edit button” is where you can change the sound for notifications that are displayed in your notification bar.
Tap “Edit sound”.
If you want to mute the notification, tap “Mute”.
You’ll also see the “Unmute” button next to each notification.
If a notification sounds like it should mute you, tap that checkbox, and you’ll have to re-enter the sound.
If your notification sound doesn’t mute, you should see a message in the Notification Center, saying “Notifies you to remove this notification.”
You can also set a “Notified” notification if you want it to only be shown to people who have an Android TV account, or a “UnMute” notification for everyone else.
Once you’re done with those, tap on the “Add” button, and the app will prompt you to “Add new notification”.
Tap on that notification, and Calendar will add it to your calendar and notify you of your appointment.
If everything looks OK, Calendar should be showing the notification.
From there, you will see a notification icon, which will say “Not scheduled for this time” in the upper-right corner of your Android Calendar app.
Now you can add a reminder to an appointment, or create an appointment.
Tap on the notification you want and choose “Add”, and you will get a reminder.
You should also be able to add the reminder in the “Create appointment” menu.
To add an appointment to Calendar on an Android device, just tap on it and select the Calendar tab.
You will then see a new menu with the “Open appointment” options.
Tap that menu and select Calendar.
When you’re ready to create a new appointment, just drag and drop a reminder from the notification bar, or the “Schedule” option on the Calendar list, to the location you want.
To schedule an existing appointment, tap it, and select a time and location, and hit “Schemed”.
From there you should be able see the appointment in the Calendar window, even though Calendar is in its calendar-only mode.
If it’s a schedule, you still need to be in the notification view, as it’ll show the reminder at the bottom of the notification window.
You could even remove the reminder, though it doesn’d have to do that to get Calendar to show the appointment.
There’s also a “Add to calendar” option that shows the reminder when you add it.
You do need to make sure you have enough memory for the appointment to be visible.
And even then, Calendar will show the notification again when you’re finished with it.
But if you leave Calendar on, you may not be able get the appointment visible again.
If that happens, just check your settings and try again.
