Calendar
Google added fun illustrations to calendar events, when they brought back the month view in November last year. The newest update to Google Calendar will include a few more of the event illustrations, as well as support for the illustrations in new languages.

In total 30 languages — ‘from Dutch and Finnish to Catalan and Korean’ have been added with support for both existing events like dinner, drinks, yoga to more than a dozen new illustrations, for events such as weddings and Halloween parties. They’re a bit of whimsical fun added to checking your calendar, a task that’s normally a fairly bland part of your day.
Illustrations in languages

The dozen new illustrations are nice, but Google obviously has plans to integrate more and is welcoming suggestions. Google recently entered back into a partnership with Twitter and they’re going to use that to their advantage. They’ve asked people to ‘tweet a photo of an event you love with the hashtag #makethemost’ – their favourite entries will get made into the next set of illustrations.

The update should be rolling out now so you should get a prompt to update through Google Play shortly.

    I’d just like to be able to create a new event by duplicating an existing one on the phone, like you can do on the web site… who cares about the pretty pictures?!

    Have they added a month calendar grid view yet? Pretty much my only request.
