Most of you who would like to sync Google Gmail calendar with windows 8 are annoyed because Google stopped supporting Microsoft Exchange Active Sync protocol. Some days ago I described a possibility to get at least a ‘read only’ syncing back to Windows 8 calendar app. But theres is still a work around to get your Google Gmail calendar really synced in both directions with Windows 8!
Update: How To Sync Google Calendar With Windows 10 Calendar App
Some months ago I describe a solution how to set up iCloud Calendar in Windows 8 Mail App as a ‘read-only’ possibility. Setting up the Google Gmail calendar in Windows 8 calendar app works in the same way: The solution is to subscribe to your own Google Gmail calendar in your outlook.com or Windows Live account. With that you can partly bypass the restriction that Google stopped supporting Microsoft Exchange Active Sync protocol.
I’ve already reported about issues concerning syncing Google mail / Gmail, Google contacts and Google calendar with Windows 8 apps like mail, contacts and calendar. On the one hand it was a little bit tricky to get things running (Syncing Google Gmail mail and contacts works. The later only for customers who connected their Google Gmail account to windows 8 before January 30, 2013), on the other hand it is just not possible because Google stopped Microsoft Exchange Active Sync support for their products.
Yesterday I described how to set up syncing Gmail in Windows 8 and RT mail app because Google cancelled the support of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for new subscribers and for new devices on January 30, 2013 (for Windows Phones on July 31, 2013). Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts. Right now Microsoft does not support neither the pushing function of IMAP, nor CalDAV and CardDAV.
Google cancelled the support of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for new subscribers and for new devices on 30st of January 2013 (for Windows Phones on 1st of July 2013). Now you’ve got to use IMAP for emails, CalDAV for calendars and CardDav for contacts. Therefore, setting up Gmail with Windows 8 Mail App (or Windows RT Mail App) is not as comfortable as it was and, further more, a little bit tricky: You have to set it up correctly to get the sync working properly.
