Changes to Google Calendar?

I received this message and am trying to understand how this may impact the HA Google Calendar Integration:

We are writing to inform you about upcoming changes to the Google Calendar API v3 that may impact your applications and notification handling, starting March 11, 2024.

What does this mean for your organization?
The Google Calendar API v3 will now include the eventType parameter to subscribe to specific event types when using Events.Watch. Additionally, starting March 11, 2024, the following changes will be introduced:

Default event type filters alignment for both Events.list and
Error handling for operations not supported for special event types, such as WorkingLocation, Out of Office, and FocusTime events.
What do you need to do?
To prevent any direct impact in your applications, we strongly encourage you to review your usage of the applications listed below and take the following actions: Specify the event types you need for your application as a parameter to reduce your infrastructure costs. In case you want to request a quota increase, please make sure you have implemented event type filters appropriately. This factor will be considered when we are evaluating quota increase requests.
Events.list: Specify the event types you need for your application as a parameter. Without making this change, working location events will start to be returned.
Event type: If your code is performing operations on special events, it is important to review it to ensure that your code does not attempt to perform operations not supported for special event types.
