Google Shared Calendar not showing up on Android device

Submitted by Jochus on Sun, 09/12/2018 - 11:06 | Posted in: Android

A Google Calendar has been shared to another person. In the web application, the application shows up fine in the other account. But when the other person wants to view the shared calendar on his Android phone, it doesn't seem to work. That person is using the "native" calendar app of Android.

  • Install Google Calendar app
  • Open Google Calendar app
  • Go to Settings and open Agendas
  • Search for the agenda which you are missing in the native app
  • When opening that calendar, there's a button Synchronize which is turned off -> turn it on
  • Remove Google Calendar app
  • Reboot phone
  • Open native calendar app => the shared calendar now seems to popup
