Well overdue. I am glad they didn't reinvent the wheel. Small changes will help a lot.
Nice. Hoping the new GMail UI will be rolled out soon as well.
They rolled it out 3 years ago. It's called Google Inbox.
Google Inbox is the same thing as Google Calendar. Okay.
Did they redesign the invitation e-mail?
Nope still the same invitation email
Weird I don't see the button "use new calendar" ?
You are not under the test group. Check your other Google accounts and see if you can find it. It's big blue button!
In my GSuite account I needed to go into the Admin, and then Apps, and the Calendar, and then enable the new calendar to all users.
Yup for anyone who needs help on finding it, go here
You can force it for a personal account https://calendar.google.com/calendar/r?new_calendar_optin=true
Generally like - apart from one or two bits:
- The "modern" colour scheme is overwhelming on my screen, but the classic colour scheme makes the pop-over card titles difficult to read.
- Event creation screen is stark and has little improvement over the previous version. Odd navigation too - I wonder why it was decided to give it a modal close button on the left?
This is a welcomed change to the overall system and it looks great. I just with the Create Event page has some hierarchy or titles. I open it up (opening in the top left corner nonetheless) and everything is the same size in various greys. Really strange to see and hard to interpret.
finally! It's crazy how long the old one hadn't been touched
