Google Calendar for Web Gets Material Design

Today, Google launched a major refresh to the design of Google Calendar for the web. The update is long overdue, but it’s extremely well-executed and looks stunning. Sometimes you just look at a design and it feels right. This is one of those. After using the new design for a while, I’d imagine it’ll be tough to go back to the old one.

The design uses space beautifully and implements the bold colors, layering, and subtle animations of the material design standard. I don’t have much else to say, other than that it looks fantastic and I’m thrilled to be using it. If you don’t see a button in the top right corner of your Google Calendar offering the option to “Use new Calendar”, you can try clicking this link.
