Redesigned calendar is coming soon to beta

If you have already opted in to try the new beta, get ready to test a redesigned calendar app in the coming weeks. The Office team teased the new design on Twitter today, adding that the toggle for testing the new UI should roll out soon to everyone:

As you can see from the above GIF, the new calendar design looks consistent with the Mail section of beta: the web app now uses a new font, and there are links to Mail, Contacts, Tasks, and Photos in the left side bar. The month view also looks to be cleaner and less colorful than before. We’re not seeing a search box anywhere though, and we wonder if it could be hidden in the hamburger menu.

Anyway, we’re looking forward to getting access to the new UI in the coming weeks. Hopefully, the Contacts section of will be the next to receive a fresh coat of paint this year.
