One thing that can be frustrating for Windows Phone users is the lack of integration with Google services. One Google service in particular that doesn’t play nice with Windows Phone 8 is Calendar. When you sign into your Google account in the “email+accounts” page there is an option to sync calendar, but what they don’t tell you is this only syncs the main calendar in your account. Any calendars that you are subscribed to will not show up.
Google Sync can fix this problem, except it doesn’t work that great on a Windows Phone. The process is a bit tricky, but follow along and you’ll have all your calendars syncing in no time. Let’s begin.
If you head to Google Sync on your phone will go through the process below, which you can see doesn’t work. IE10 in WP8 can’t display the mobile version of Google Sync for Windows Mobile. We can fix this.
Your list of devices will be different than mine, but just find the one for your Windows Phone 8 device you are setting up. Then you will see the screen below.
The end of he URL will say “false,” but we need to change that to “true.” Once you do that reload the page and you should see your list of calendars like below.
Now it’s just a matter of deciding which calendars you want to appear on your device. Once you make your selections be sure to click “Save” in the upper/lower right. Now just give your phone some time to sync and you should see all your calendars in the settings. Congratulations!
