Some Great Features of Google Plus Events

Attendees can add photos to the event and view a slideshow of all the photos.  Photographers are even thanked for their contribution at the end of the slideshow.

RSVPs can be changed.

“Party Mode” can be enabled on  your guest’s phones when they view the event on their Android device.  When activated, Party Mode automatically uploads images and videos taken during the event. Party Mode is deactivated after the end time.

If you use Google+ on an iPhone or Microsoft phone, you will be emailed with  a reminder to upload your photos. If you don’t use an Android phone, you will get an Email reminding you to upload photos to the Event.
