No Metro/Modern UI for Calendar yet?

13 posts in this topic

Posted

Does anyone know why Calendar hasn't been upgraded to the new Metro/Modern UI yet? We have Outlook, People, Calendar, and SkyDrive as our options to select from the drop-down list in the top left hand corner in Outlook.com yet Calendar is the only one that hasn't been updated yet. It's driving me crazy to as I like to have fluidity throughout the services I use.

Sorry if this isn't the right place to put this. I don't know where this post is supposed to go.

He's referring to the online Windows Live / Microsoft services. As to why - well the updates for each section has been rolling out in phases, so we'll see it in the next few weeks hopefully.

(As an aside if you try to register for a Microsoft account via account.microsoft.com, so get taken all the way back to the MSN account / .NET passport sign up page)

The answer I was looking for is that they're rolling it out soon. I know about the app, I use the app but I don't want to have to use the browser for all their services and switch to the app when I need that one service. Can't wait for everything to be updated and rolled out. I love this new UI, so much cleaner. It does lack a little bit of the features but we'll hopefully get them back in the near future.

Yeah I wish they would hurry up too, its annoying going back and fourth between the old look and the new one for certain parts.

Sorry to bump an old post, but I came across this while trying to search for this same answer. Windows 8 is out, WP8 is somewhat out, everything else appears to be "metro", yet out of the three Windows Live accounts between my wife and I, not one has that UI in the calendar yet. Did I miss something somewhere?

Thanks - have you seen if they've said anything more about it? I can't seem to find any info... maybe I'm just not good at searching for it.

Yea the calendar still strikes me as odd, yet I did notice that they updated devices.live.com to a metro look... devices.live.com (not device.live.com, two different things) is used as a major part of Windows Live Sync.
