In Settings > Accounts > Select Google Account > Account sync. There are switches for synchronizing various content of the account, such as Contacts, Drive, etc. I also have Calendar and Google Calendar in there. What is the difference, why is there two?

Phone models: Google Pixel 5 Motorola Moto G8

  • It is a Motorola Moto G8 and it has no OEM calendar app that I can find.

  • As per this Moto ships with it's own calendar app. Can you recheck in your apps// Uninstall Google calendar and see if you can find calendar app

    Thanks, I have rechecked the app drawer. I have gone into Settings > Apps & notifications > See all 71 apps and manually scrolled through them all to see if there is any preinstalled calendar app which I might have disabled in the past. I couldn't find any. The app for calendar from Google is simply called Calendar. I only have 1 Google account added in the phone at the moment.

Same question here. Getting an old Samsung Ace 3 out of the drawer, rooted and "upgraded" to LineageOS 14.1 / Android 7.1.2. Settings / Accounts / Google account shows Calendar and Google calendar, both with switches. As far as I know, this is not related to any other calendar app that may be installed on the phone, since this settings allow to sync different google services/functionalities.
