    Google accounts syncing with Mail/Calendar in windows 8?


    I noticed google no longer supports active sync, as of Jan this year?
    So is there no way for me to sync my mail/contacts and calendar with the builtin windows 8 apps on my pc?

    Gmail still works fine in the latest Mail app. I can even create new folders now and they show up in Gmail at the Gmail website.

    For Google calendar I added my Google calendar to my Outlook.com (Windows Live/Hotmail) calendar and the Google calendar appointments still show up in my Windows 8 calendar app. Can't sync them from there anymore though. I thought my Google contacts imported ok, but just checked now and they seem broken?

    yeah, not much you can do about it until Microsoft makes a workaround. Google is starting to exert its powers. They no longer have to follow. They expect people to follow them.
