A new Samsung Calendar update introduces several key improvements to the app. It will also allow users to create new events much easier. Samsung’s calendar app has always been useable, but this new update could make it even more useful for Android smartphone users.
New Samsung Calendar update brings several new features
The Samsung Calendar update will be available on all supported Samsung devices. Image source: Samsung The newest version of Samsung Calendar will now allow users to create events more easily. The app appears to utilize a system similar to the now-defunct language processing system that Google Calendar used to utilize. The Samsung Calendar update also introduces better invitation management. And you’ll be able to add recommendations quicker, too.
Version 12.3.05.10000 of the Samsung Calendar app offers all of these improvements. They all tie in easily with the features that already exist in the app, including some you may not be aware of. One big improvement is the option to check group calendar invitations from the calendar management page. This is the page you’d normally check to determine how you view your calendar within the app.
Changing how the app handles event creation

Previously, the app could determine the time an event should be set based on the title. For example, writing “Lunch at 2” into the event’s title would cause the app to suggest a time of 2 pm for the event.
The update will also make it simpler to determine your event’s location. Now, if you type “Lunch at 2 at Byron’s Steakhouse”, it will suggest a location with the latest Samsung Calendar update. And, if you don’t want to keep all that information in the event, you can now remove it easily, too. Simply head into the Calendar settings and select “Remove times from event titles” to clean up the event title.
This is a similar feature that used to be available in Google Calendar. Google removed it back during a calendar redesign in 2018, though. It’s unclear why Google removed the option, but it definitely makes creating events much easier. So it is nice to see it make some kind of return in the latest Samsung Calendar update
On top of the new update making events easier to create, managing them will be easier, too. And, you’ll be able to add friends and family members to the invitation list more easily.

Alongside improvements to Bixby, SmartThings, and Samsung Knox, Samsung also announced improvements to Tizen OS for smart TVs. During the ongoing Samsung Developer Conference 2021, the South Korean firm said it wants to consolidate its leadership in the TV segment with more intelligent software and deeper integration with its other services.
Improved video calling, Samsung Health, and gaming on Tizen-powered smart TVs
Keeping its ‘Screens Everywhere, Screen For All’ vision in mind, the company is introducing newer experiences to Tizen OS for smart TVs. Samsung has developed a better video calling experience on TVs in partnership with Google via AI-enabled focus and zoom features. Samsung Health can now use a webcam attached to a Tizen-powered smart TV to track user movements and provide real-time feedback during workouts.
Samsung’s mid-range and high-end smart TVs already have various gaming-related features, including AMD FreeSync Premium, a 120Hz refresh rate, auto low-latency mode, and Game Bar. For an even better gaming experience, the company is bringing automated settings for low latency and HDR10+ calibration.
Tizen For Business is a new platform for managing interactive digital signage displays
For businesses, the South Korean firm will soon launch the Tizen For Business platform. It supports interactive e-boards in schools, kiosks at malls, and displays at airports, restaurants, stores, and subways. It will offer easy-to-use display management portals that businesses can use for real-time monitoring and remotely controlling screens. It also allows quickly applying settings to multiple devices with just one touch.
Tizen is already the world’s biggest smart TV platform, and with the upcoming improvements, it will have more depth in its arsenal to compete with Amazon’s Fire TV, Google’s Android TV, and LG’s webOS platforms.
