Back in October, Google revealed a new calendar design for its desktop experience. It takes several cues from the popular mobile app. Sporting a modern color palette and a sleek design, the new Google desktop calendar is a welcome refresh packed with plenty of features.
New Google Calendar Design Upgrade to Autolaunch Soon
At the time of the announcement, Google stated it learned from feedback on how to best enhance UX or user experience. Within the new Google calendar UI, people can set and view meeting room details. Also, they can add rich formatting, along with hyperlinks to calendar invites.
Additionally, users can now manage multiple calendars side-by-side in “Day” view. Furthermore, users can view meeting participants’ contact information when hovering over their names. What’s more, there’s a new way to view and restore deleted items for accidental deletions. The new Google calendar UI also boasts more easily accessible “Day,” “Week,” and “Month” views.
The changes started rolling out in mid-November of last year. Now, the company says it’s bringing the new experience to all, in different phases. G Suite admins on the Rapid Release schedule will experience an auto-upgrade beginning on January 8th. While those on the Scheduled Release plan will upgrade on January 15th.
However, most users will still have the option to opt out, that is until February 28th. After that date, every user will fully become upgraded.
