Hello:  I have the main calendar menu set up using the Square Space tools and it just doesnt work for adding consistent daily calendar items, especially with no repeating event feature.  I want to leave the calendar menu item, but replace the whole functionality with a google calendar.  Do I have to have a "business" or "commerce" level subscription to embed the Google calendar code.  I hope not.  Also, have been reading below how to make the calendar more responsive for mobile.  I'm fine showing a list on mobile and graphic calendar on computer.  The posts below are many years old and I'm wondering if they still apply,

Thank you so much.  I went to SS page on code injection and nothing appeared.  the video was not functioning .

You cannot use a Personal Plan. You'll require a Business Plan or higher.

I know my answer came pretty late, but maybe it is still useful.  

1. You create a new section in S.S.

2. You create in that section a code block

3. you can just put an iframe of your google calendar but then you can't customize just a little bit the colors and fonts   or   you can use Full Calendar plugin  (it is important that you have in the G Calendar settings the calendar made public, also from that settings you get the embed code(iframe) for the calendar)

4. For the Full Calendar plugin(taking the events/event groups) by their id) I wrote an article where it says step by step how to implement it on a Squarespace page. This the link for it:  https://www.ui-workarounds.com/implement-your-google-calendar-on-a-squarespace-page/
