Google has been on a roll lately upgrading some of its core apps to a Material Design look, and the latest to get the treatment is Google Calendar. With version 6.0 – which has been released in the last day or two – the new design is everywhere, and you can load it today.
The highlight of Google Calendar’s Material Design overhaul is the mostly white look, the loss of unnecessary gray tones, and a new Google-coloured floating action button (see above). The overall design of the app has changed a bit, too, and looks a lot cleaner than it did before.
Besides the change in visual design, it doesn’t seem there’s any actual new features underneath. However, the new design is enough of a reason to upgrade, and it’s making one of the most used Android apps (well, for me, at least) look a whole lot better.
If you’ve got Google Calendar installed already, keep an eye out for the update coming soon. Otherwise you could probably grab it from APK Mirror if you can’t wait.
