Calendar Flyout for Windows 11 gets big update with new features

Calendar Flyout app in Windows 11

Windows 11 users who miss the ability to add or view events in the calendar flyout can restore the needed functionality with Calendar Flyout, a third-party app from the Microsoft Store. It has just received an update to version 2.0, bringing users new features and improvements.

With the latest release, Calendar Flyout users can add their work and school accounts, join meetings in Microsoft Teams for Business, check canceled meetings, see the number of events on the taskbar icon, switch between different background styles (Acrylic or Mica), and more. The app also switched from Windows Appointments API to Microsoft Graph API.

You can use Calendar Flyout to view, add, modify, and delete events and join Microsoft Teams meetings from a flyout without opening additional apps.

It is also worth noting that Calendar Flyout 2.0 has ditched support for non-Microsoft accounts and the sync with the old Microsoft Calendar app (UWP). However, the developer promises to add support for Gmail accounts and other online meeting providers.

Here is the full changelog for Calendar Flyout 2.0:


  • week numbers in the calendar view (optional)
