What you need to know
- Google Calendar and Outlook have gained a handy interoperability feature.
- You will now receive invites in Outlook for events created in Google Calendar.
- Calendar will also remind you of recurring events from Outlook.
It can be difficult to keep track of all of your appointments and events when managing two different calendars, such as Google Calendar and Microsoft Outlook. Google addresses this discrepancy with a new interoperability feature that allows both services to sync event invites.
Google announced in a blog post (opens in new tab) that you can now receive Calendar invitations and RSVP to those invites in Outlook if you’re using both services with the same email address. You’ll also get reminders in Outlook about events created in Calendar.
