At Google I/O, Google detailed the next step in their theming guidelines. The purpose of the Material Theme tools is to allow developers and companies to design their own user interfaces without being limited to design elements in the first iterations of Material Design. Google’s Material Theme design, for instance, is notably white and round all over. We’ve seen the Google Calculator, Google Photos, Google Chrome, Android Messages, Google Phone, and Google Contacts apps receive updates to the new Material Theme design by Google. Now, it’s Google Calendar’s turn. Google Calendar v6.0 is now rolling out on the Google Play Store, and we have the APK for you to download right now!
Google Calendar v5.8 – Current Design
First, here’s what the current app design looks like. The app is currently on version 5.8. These screenshots are provided by Max Weinbach from the XDA Portal team.
Google Calendar v6.0 – New Design
Now, here are screenshots of the new design. I captured these screenshots on my OnePlus 6 running OxygenOS Open Beta 3 based on Android Pie. There aren’t any new features and all of the existing features are located in the same places from what I can tell. Overall, it’s just a cleaner design that’s in line with the rest of Google’s app portfolio.
The latest Google Calendar version is now rolling out in the Google Play Store. You can use the link below to check and see if you’ve received the update.
