In the coming months, we'll release an improved version of the Calendar app for Windows 10. The new Calendar experience will be even easier to use, more customizable, and more beautiful. If you're a Windows Insider, you can try a preview of the new Calendar experience today! 

What is the Calendar preview?

We're updating the Calendar app for Windows 10 with improved features, new themes, and a cleaner interface that's easier to use. The Calendar preview is an early look at this update. It will initially include a subset of the features currently available in Calendar today, and we'll be adding more features each month.

If you'd like a sneak peek at the Calendar preview and would like to provide feedback about how we can improve, you can opt in to the preview today. You can switch between the preview and the classic version at any time.

Why is Microsoft updating the Calendar app?

We're always striving to improve our products! Millions of people use the Calendar app to track appointments and stay on top of their day. Our goal is to empower our users with a simple, fast, and beautiful calendar experience.

We're making the preview available to a percentage of users in the Windows Insider program. If you're an Insider, open the Calendar app and look for a Try the preview toggle at the top of the window.

Yes. Any account you add to the Calendar app will also appear in the preview. You can view and edit your events in the preview, and any changes you make will appear in both the preview and classic version.

What's new in the preview?

The Calendar preview will initially be available with the following new features:

  • New themes: Choose from 34 new themes, including gorgeous landscapes, seasonal illustrations, or your favorite colors.
