Google Gives Calendar Web App a Design Refresh

Above Google Calendar Day view

In a blog post that was recently published, Google officially announced the visual refresh and that it'll be rolling out to all users starting today.

Along with the updated look, Google is also introducing a few new features that should make using Calendar on the desktop a lot more efficient and productive.

Homes evacuated in Santa Cruz Mountains as new wildfire breaks out
The fire outbreak in the Santa Cruz area comes after massive wildfires have been burnt in Northern California for over a week. During a press conference, Cal Fire said five firefighters suffered minor injuries. "There have been some slips".

After a few years of sticking with essentially the same design, Google Calendar on the web is getting a makeover today. The calendar looks way more modern with larger date icons, updated colors, and cleaner event boxes.

The updated functionality is mainly aimed at enterprise level users with tools to see conference room bookings and facilities more easily. Admins will be able to show how big the room is, where it is located, whether or not it's wheelchair accessible, and much more. You can now switch views using a drop-down menu on the top right of the screen and, if you're on Day View mode, it can display several calendars side-by-side.

Scaramucci Post Twitter poll on Holocaust death toll sparks outrage
But this is certainly not how it came across, especially not after a string of polls from the account that were all opinion based. GQ profiled him a year ago , crediting him for managing a Twitter account for Broadway and TV actor Taye Diggs.

Aside from viewing their own personal calendar over a day or week's time users can now view multiple user calendars on a given day making the job of someone who manages multiple calendars far easier. Google also promised that sharing a calendar with a group should now be just as easy as sharing a document in Drive.

There are a number of other changes in Calendar, too. Furthermore, Google has now made it possible to view contact information for meeting participants when you hover over their names in a Calendar invite, and invites can also now be configured with rich formatting and hyperlinks. But if you're just an individual user, check the upper right-hand corner of the interface - you'll see the "Use the new Calendar" option soon, if you haven't yet. Ideally, this means you have all the info you need for a productive meetings (as if there were such a thing...) in one place. But come February 28, 2018 all users will be switched over.
