Syncing Google services with Windows 8 and Windows RT

After January 30th, 2013 – Google will no longer support new Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) connections from Windows PCs and tablets to sync your email, calendar and contacts from Gmail. If you’ve already connected your Google account to your PC running Windows 8 and Windows RT using the Mail, People or Calendar apps, you don’t have to do anything. Existing EAS connections to Google accounts will continue to function.

If you are trying to connect a Google account after January 30th, 2013 to your PC running Windows 8 and Windows RT using the Mail, People or Calendar apps – please visit this support article on Windows.com.

If you have any issues connecting your Google account to your device – please visit our Microsoft Community where folks there can assist in helping you find answers to your issues.

Of course, this could also be a good time to simply switch to Outlook.com, a new personal email service that is clean and intuitive, keeps your address book up-to-date with information from your favorite social networks, and includes powerful inbox management tools and so much more. For more details, visit the Outlook.com site.
