Google Calendar is meant to be precisely that, a calendar. The app serves as the default way you keep up with events and appointments on a stock Android device. As a result, some users were a little miffed when the big 5.0 redesign stripped the app of its ability to display a month's worth of events on a phone's screen at once.

With 5.2, that changes.

What's New?

5.1 could show a single day, three days, or a week. 5.2 bumps this up to a full month. The option to do so is listed alongside the previous ones, but don't go looking for them in the same spot. Google has moved them from the action bar to the navigation drawer.

This update also lets you see the color of events when jumping to a specific date. These show up as little dots in the pull-down calendar, as you can see in the image Google posted to Google+.

If you spot 5.2 doing something else differently, let us know. For many folks, it really doesn't have to. They're already rushing toward the link below.
