How to set custom calendar colors for Google Calendar in Chrome [Tip]

By default, you can assign a specific color to any event that you post on Google Calendar. The thing is you can’t do the same to the actual calendar so you can’t easily distinguish those dates with important events. There’s also no way for you to separate the weekdays from the weekends. If you’re working on shifts, you can’t mark the days of the week with different colors.

On the brighter side, there’s a simple workaround that allows you to set custom calendar colors in Google Calendar. Just keep in mind that this method will only work if you’re using Chrome. So without further ado, feel free to read on.
