Thank you for contacting the Android team.
I am not sure what you mean by selecting the today's date and returning to it. If you want to select it, you need to tap on it while having one of the selection modes enabled. Returning to it is shown in one of our examples. Simply set the date of the calendar by using the current date - calendarView.setDisplayDate(Calendar.getInstance(Locale.getDefault()).getTimeInMillis());
Please let me know if this answers your question or if you have any additional struggles.
