Google releases Calendar Sync

Earlier I blogged about how to sync my Outlook and Google calendar using Plaxo.  This has worked very well for me but now Google has released their own tool to do the same thing.


One of the interesting features that this tool allows is the ability to do 1-way synchronization.  You can get more information on how to set it up here

For now I’m going to continue to use my Plaxo setup since it already meets my needs.  But if you’re interested in a solution for Google and Outlook calendar synchronization that doesn’t require opening a Plaxo account, then Google Calendar Sync will be worth downloading.

    I found your blog for an alternative to Google’s Calendar Sync. Myself, and others have found this sync to be inconsistent, missing some sync of appointments from Outlook to Google. It’s still in BETA, so what do you expect? But, I’m going to give Plaxo a try as an alternative, to see what it’s like. Once the bugs have been worked out of Google’s Calendar Sync, I’m sure it will be a better lightweight alternative, if your just wanting to sync between Outlook/Google Calendar.

    Great find…thanks !
    On the "beta" bit, everything from Google seems to be "in beta", including Gmail.
