Google’s hugely popular Calendar service works with with an array of desktop applications and mobile devices including iCal, iPhone and iPad, Blackberry, Android, Nokia/Symbian, and Windows Mobile phones, but a notable absentee was support for Outlook 2010.
Google have now righted that wrong and announced that Google Calendar Sync now supports Outlook 2010.
A brick in the balls for the 64-bit boys
There is, however, an almighty caveat in that the support is limited to users of the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010, so anyone running the 64-bit version will just have to jog on because Google isn’t supporting it at the moment – and hasn’t mentioned if and when they ever will. Bah!
If you’re running the 32-bit version, here’s Google to explain what you need to do:
To start syncing your calendar with Outlook 2010,download Google Calendar Sync version 0.9.3.6. Once you install it, a Settings window will appear. Enter your account’s email address and password, choose your sync option and sync frequency, and you’re done!
(Note: If you’re already using Google Calendar Sync, you’ll still need to download and install this new version in order to be able to sync with Outlook 2010. If you need help, take a look at our getting started guide.)
