Official Gmail Blog: A new day for Google Calendar. Soon, you will be seeing a new Material Design Lollipop version of Google Calendar. It has Google Now type power and will automatically update depending on your other apps. For instance, when you make that plane or hotel reservation, it will automatically populate the day in Calendar, and, as things change, will update in real time. Very cool. Of course, those of us still on KitKat have to wait. Although, we can still get the news with the Google launcher.
