Boy Genius Reports tells us today that Google’s lesser known GMail Sync utility will now support Office 2010.
Google has announced that its calendar desktop syncing conduit for Outlook — Calendar Sync — is now compatible with Microsoft Outlook 2010. The blog writes that Outlook 2010 support has been one of the team’s top feature requests. Currently, only the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010 is supported, but keep your eyes on the Gmail Blog for updates.
From Google’s announcement:
Google Calendar Sync now supports Outlook 2010 — our top feature request. Outlook 2010 comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and currently only 32-bit is supported. To start syncing your calendar with Outlook 2010, download Google Calendar Sync version 0.9.3.6. 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.
This is something I’ve looked for a good solution to for quite some time. As an active member of the 7-10% of the smartphone using public on Windows Mobile 6, I’ve had a great deal of difficulty synchronizing my calendar and inboxes with the Google half of my online persona, literally having to hack together solutions. In terms of keeping my calendars in sync with one another, there’s not much of a better solution than using Google Calendar as my cloud calendar, but making that talk to my Windows Mobile 6 phone is highly problematic.
I’m happy Google has solved this problem.
