Windows Phone 8.1 Calendar App Updated

Posted on January 28, 2015 by Paul Thurrott in Windows Phones with 0

The Calendar app in Windows Phone 8.1 was just updated, which is a rare enough event. But the update adds some useful new features, including one that has been missing since the original Windows Phone 7 release.

Microsoft provided the following list of changes, but I’m providing a bit more background. These changes include:

Agenda view. Not sure when this disappeared, but it’s back: Select Show Agenda from the More menu (“…” in the app bar)—you must be in Day or Week view to see this option—and view your schedule in a list.


Show the week number. This is available in the Day, Week, and Month views.

Set the first day of the year. This can be set to January 1, the first 4-day week of the year, or the first full week of the year.

Set the day that is the first day of the week. This was actually a feature of the original Windows Phone 7 release. It’s back!


You will get the Calendar app update automatically from Windows Update via the Store app.
