Google Calendar brings colour coding labels and more

Calendar

Google’s Calendar app update makes those important dates easier to add and keep track of with better colour coding
Google has updated the “stock” Android Calendar app in Google Play this afternoon, bringing two, but very relevant changes. We’ll start with the one most users will instantly appreciate — setting a custom color for a calendar or event.

If you subscribe to multiple shared calendars, or have several of your own, you know just how this will help. You can take the calendar your boss shares with you, and make the event labels a certain color so they stand out, or make your calendar one color and your significant other’s a different color. In addition, you can mark any single calendar event with it’s own custom color to help keep track of important events.

The other change is equally as important, and it shows Google is really pushing forward with the new app design language they’ve been showing us as of late. The new time and date picker windows look better, but also have more functionality built in. You can set up recurring events easier, and even select the timezone right from the add event window.
