Finally, starting today, the greater Android community can download the official Google Calendar app straight from Google Play. Previously available only on select devices like the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus, the official calendar app provides a robust hub for managing all of your calendars, including those associated with different Google accounts.

With today's release the app also gets a few feature updates, including a "snooze" function, predefined messages to quickly notify event attendees of your status, pinch-to-zoom in and out of single-day view, and a home time zone setting. Also, you can now review events up to a year in the past, right from the app.

The official Google Calendar app is available for free download on Google Play now.
