I use the Google Calendar application on my Google Pixel 6 phone. Sometimes I want to look at some event a few years ago. How can I jump to a given year on Google calendar?

    On the web, you can press the g key to go to a particular date.

From Google support How to navigate to a specific date in google calendar Android app. E.g going to Aug-14&seeing events

... there's no way to do this in the Android app, but you can ask Google Assistant to list events from a given month or date. For example : "OK Google, show my events in August this year", then click on a result to open that event.

I didn't fully verify this as I don't use Google assistant but by invoking it on long press of home, and keying in as advised, I could see events upto two years ago.

    The fact that the android app doesn't allow this is so stupid. It would be so easy to implement a picker that you could show tapping on the top bar to select a date and move the calendar to that date, like the material date picker.

    This is not an answer the question, since that is app specific. However a 3rd party app like aCalendar (which is just another frontend for google calendar) offers years to pick from the hamburger menu, which might be quicker for selecting a specific year than an assistant. Maybe it is worth taking a look at this or other such apps.
