Google has just announced an update to the Calendar app, adding a couple of new features, including what has been said to be one of the most requested features for Calendar – the ability to customise event and calendar colours on your mobile device.
The update which is rolling out over the course of today includes the option to add different colours to events when setting up an event as well as updating existing events. Also added, is a redesigned date and time picker and a newly redesigned timezone picker. There is also an update to the repeating events selector which has been sorely lacking in the calendar app in the past.
The update will be available as a split update, rolling out throughout the day. Devices running Android 4.1 or higher will get all the updates. Devices running Android 4.0.3 and above will receive all the updates except for the custom event colours. For more information check out the Android blog.
