Good news for Google Calendar birthday haters?

About 3 months ago I wrote about how to remove google+ contact birthdays from your calendar and then, about a month and a half later had to sadly report that the fix was no longer working. But it looks like this time I can report some good news!


In a Google Apps updated entitled New views, settings and more for the Google Calendar Android app released on 25th February, they have this promising sounding snippet of information:

google calendar birthdays

  • New Birthday calendar settings (coming to Calendar web next week)
    • Birthday calendar can be hidden
    • Control whether birthdays from Google+ are shown


I’m sure all the people in my Google+ circles are lovely, but I don’t really care about their birthdays. Now I don’t even have to pretend to care!
