This will be clear to you from the following screenshots.
- Click on any day to create an event. You can see that the default account is Microsoft account.
- Change that to your Google account by clicking on the down arrow.
- Now fill other details and click on Done. The event just created is added to your Google calendar.
If you want to change the look of your calendar app then head on to Personalization option in the Settings menu.
- You have options to change the colors of the app, change the theme and change the background. There are only two options for the theme: Light theme and Dark theme. Also, you can change the background from the given list or you can choose another background of your choice from your computer.
