Samsung has announced a new update for the stock Calendar app. It adds many new features, including better drawing support, improved shared calendar management, and improved dark/light mode settings on Samsung’s smartphones and tablets.
The new version of the Samsung Calendar app was announced on the Samsung Community forum in South Korea. The new version of the app brings improvements to drawing. If you draw on the calendar using the S Pen, any shape you draw will be converted into a proper shape when you long press it. This is similar to what’s currently available in the Samsung Notes app.
Samsung said that the newer version of the Calendar app brings dark/light mode, and users can set those independently of the phone’s UI settings. Or, they can let the app switch between dark and light modes depending on the phone’s theme. The app also allows the display of work profile calendar entries on a paired Galaxy Watch. However, the company hasn’t revealed whether it is limited to Wear OS smartwatches or compatible with Tizen watches.
It also allows sharing calendars with others and then set permissions on who can edit calendar entries and who can’t. You can create shared calendars in the Samsung Calendar app by navigating to Calendar Settings » Calendar Management » ‘+ Create Shared Calendar .’ Users can share calendar invites through simple links. You can edit permissions for existing shared calendars.
The new update will start rolling out soon in South Korea and will eventually expand to more markets worldwide. So, keep your eye out on the app store to grab the new update.
