How do I permanently delete a guest from a recurring Google Calendar event?

The calendar does not ask if I want this to apply to only this event, or to future events as well like it does when changing the event times etc. So far, I have been updating each recurring event one by one, which is a huge hassle, since there is no end date.


One can successfully remove guest/guests from current, all, or forward. Select the meeting, then activate the edit mode via the pencil icon, mouse over the particular guest in question, there will be an x to the right of the person icon, delete the contact. One will not be asked to apply the current, all, or forward till you save the meeting. It will then be treated like when editing other portions of the meeting , ie time of meeting. When saving meeting a dialog box will appear to ask the application of the change.

It looks like there's a bug that prevents you from removing a guest from a recurring event: https://support.google.com/calendar/thread/8260644

A way around this is to change the event to non-recurring, apply the changes (i.e., remove the guest and save), and change it back to recurring.

The second, and best, solution is for all of us to stop using Google's crap that has come to rule our lives instead of making them better as originally promised.
