Ok I posted this in the "apps" forum but maybe i will have better luck here.

When I get a calendar invite and click on it within the gmail app, it tries to open google calendar on the browser rather through the google calendar app. Is this normal? I'm a bit surprised by this lack of integration of google services here.

Any of you having similar problems?

Cheers

Nope, it should open in the app. Try uninstalling and re-installing?

Thanks gone down south. I couldn't really uninstall google calendar because it's a system app but I did uninstall the updates, cleared the data, and then I updated the app again.

Now things work fine if I send myself an invitation from another gmail account, through google calendar.

I experimented with a couple of other things:

- From my other gmail account, using my computer, I wrote an email to the gmail account that is on my android. In that email I created an event that I included as an attachment I guess.
- From my hotmail/outlook calendar, I created an event and added my android gmail as a guest.

On the computer everything is fine in gmail. I can accept both invites and they will show up in the calendar. In gmail on the phone however what I get is the invite that shows up (no decision can be taken) with an invite.ics attachment. If I try to open this attachment it asks me if I want to use DB Text editor or Pocket casts... (just to be sure I uninstalled and re installed updates for gmail, and cleared the data).
