Google’s CalDAV And CardDAV APIs Is Available For Everyone

Google LogoThat are really excellent news: Yesterday, June 6, 2013, Google announced that it will open Google’s CalDAV and CardDAV APIs for everyone. In contrast to Google’s prior announcement of March 13, 2013, this means that in the near future third party apps are able to communicate with Google calendar via CalDAV and with Google contacts via CardDAV. Syncing contacts and calendars via third party apps will then be possible. Both APIs will be integrated in Google APIs Console and getting OAuth 2.0 authentication.

I hope that now Microsoft will announce their CalDAV and CardDAV compatibility soon to overcome the struggle with syncing Windows 8 apps and Google contacts and, especially, Google calendars!

Stay tuned! 😉
