In our previous article on the Windows 10 Mail app, we mentioned that the app supports Google Calendar sync capability, which the same Windows 8.1 app didn’t have.However, we have not covered how to use Google Calendar in the Windows 10 Calendar app. In this post, we attempted to do just that. Syncing Google Calendar with the Windows 10 Mail app is easy and takes a few steps.
Sync Google Calendar with Windows 10 Mail app
Click Start and find the Calendar app in the top right corner.
After that, you will need to add a Google account. To do this, find the settings icon visible in the lower left corner of the app. Go to settings and select “Accounts”.
After that, select the “Add account” option.
At this stage, you will be presented with several options. Select your Google account. You will then be greeted by the standard Google login portal.
If your Google account is set to log in regularly, it will immediately connect you and you will be automatically redirected to the main calendar screen.
Note. If you have two-step verification activated, you will need to enter the text delivered to you or call the company.
The final step involves asking the user for permission to access other Google services (view and manage your mail, view your email address) if you want to use the account from your Windows 10 desktop.
Wait for the screen to load. Once verified and approved, you’ll be ready to customize your Windows 10 calendar to your liking.
In the next post, we’ll explore a way to set up and change your Google Calendar sync settings with the Windows 10 Mail app.
