Something new does slowly, but surely in a browser near you. Yes, the updated topic is coming to Google Calendar. This is not completely unexpected. Google has updated its sites in recent months, and the Android app has been given a fresh layer of paint this fall.
Unlike some Google Apps, the calendar update is on the subtle page. See below for some quick comparisons. You mostly see new buttons, the hollow icons and font tweaks. The floating action button is also gone.

The new material layout does not affect the density as much as it does with other apps. Google Calendar has never used space for the best because of all the fields available. The calendar itself is almost unchanged.
We've heard about this redesigned intermittent for a few days, but it seems to be rolling out on a larger scale now. If you do not have it now, you will soon.
