    Default Can we change the event/calendar colors in calendar?

    Can we change the calendar event colors for various syncing calendars in the stock calendar app? I have 3 different gmail calendars all synching to my phone. The stock calendar app assigned the first one to show up as red text events, the second as dark blue (good), but the third as light blue (bad). Any way to match the colors I assigned to the calendars as I see them on a desktop in Google calendar?

    I would like to stick with the stock app for now...

    Thanks

    I haven't found a way to change the colors yet. But I'm liking the stock calendar so far...they did a good job. Especially, since my exchange task sync.

    Looks like a great app. (haven't tried it yet, though). Thank you - nice to know about it. I actually found out that if I have all 3 calendars syncing through my main gmail calendar, then the color changes I put into the good calendar on the computer desktop are reflected in the phone calendar. If I wanted to sync my second gmail calendar directly, however, I couldn't get it to work and that app would probably be the solution.

    Thanks for posting. I'll use it in the future if I change the way I'm syncing.

    Just the app I needed, thanks for the referral. When initially set up my exchange calendar was the color I wanted it, I had to remove and re-add it and it came back barely legible. This fixed that.

    Red face Re: Can we change the event/calendar colors in calendar? Yes, on Gmail Calendar

    The calendar and task color in the synced google calendar are controlled by the online google account. Log in to your google account on a computer. Go into the Calendar (online) and change the colors there. You can pick any colors on that Gmail calendar.

    I'm not sure how to change colors on non google calendars (I guess use the set calendar colors app on Google Play Store).
