Google Pushes Out Update To Calendar App To Hotfix Bug From Last Week’s Update

March 5, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

Google Calendar is getting a light update with a hotfix today for a bug that was affecting some users. The bug was prohibiting people from downloading apk files for applications when they tried to download them through the stock Android browser or through Chrome. This may not have been an issue for some people, but for those who often or sometimes get apk downloads through the browser(usually for reasons relating to an updated app being available prior to it launching on the Play Store)it could become an easily annoying thing to have deal with consistently.

Google’s hotfix update is currently rolling out to users, and we have a download available as well if users want to test it and see if it works. The latest update to Google Calendar brought along some great changes, like easier viewing of events in the 7-day week view, and a new option to add files from Google Drive to events. Google also added in the ability to see week numbers within the settings menu, and the option on whether or not to have Google+ birthday information show up in settings. There was likely some bug fixes and improvements as well, unfortunately the update brought along a completely new bug which is the one we described above.

Usually updates take a little while to roll out to all users, so there is a possibility it could be a few days before it reaches everyone. Google is usually pretty good about fixing errors in a timely manner, which is evident by the amount of time it took them to push out this fix update. It has only been a week since the last calendar update and already people are seeing the fix come out to their devices. Of course, affected users have a way around this if they have a desktop browser near by and are able to just sideload the apk. If not, you an try downloading the apk via the link we have provided, or wait for the update to come through on its own. If you’ve been unaffected by the bug, there isn’t really a reason to download the apk manually as there isn’t really any new changes or features.
