We’re delighted to report that our long anticipated integration with Google Calendar and Google Chrome is now available in the Google Chrome store.

available in the Chrome web store

Anyone with a Google account can install the Chrome extension. This integrates Lucid into your Google universe by adding a quick-drop panel to your Chrome menu, and a new option to add Lucid meetings to the events on your Google calendar.

Read on for all the details.

Lucid in Google Calendar

Now room managers and account owners can create Lucid meetings right in Google Calendar, where you manage the rest of your schedule.

Here’s how that works.

  • Add a Lucid meeting to any event.
    Pick the meeting room and template you want to use, and Lucid will schedule a new meeting linked to that event. You’ll see a link to the Lucid meeting on your calendar, and we’ll fill in your event description with handy details for anyone you invite.

  • Invite people using your calendar
    Anyone invited to your Google event gets automatically added to your Lucid meeting.
  • Make changes in Lucid or Google. We’ll keep it all in synch.
    Change the meeting name, add or remove people invited, change the date and time, cancel the call - your changes get made automatically in both systems.
Rescheduling instantly updates both systems
Changes show up in both systems

Quick note: you must have access to schedule meetings in at least one Lucid meeting room to use this feature.

    Short notes about small changes, bug fixes, and new features.

    Not quite sure how use a feature? Have a question about how to best approach a specific kind of meeting? Do you have a tip that you think other people might want to learn? Share it here and start the discussion.

We’re excited to hear what you think about the new Chrome extension, and to learn more about how we can help improve your meetings going forward!
