Google to Support Windows Phone ActiveSync Until July
Google has decided to delay its plans to cease supporting ActiveSync for Windows Phone until July 31, reports The Verge. Microsoft had been prepared to end ActiveSync support, which Gmail subscribers use to sync Gmail, contacts, and calendar data to Windows Phones, on January 31. According to The Verge, Microsoft asked Google to continue supporting ActiveSync for an additional six months, and today's news shows that Google honored the request. In a statement, Google said it will "start rolling out this change as planned across all platforms but will continue to support Google Sync for Windows Phone until July 31, 2013." Separately, Microsoft today confirmed that it is working to add support for the new sync protocols that are supported by Google, CalDAV and CardDAV, into the Windows Phone platform. Microsoft says that, together with IMAP, Gmail users will continue to be able to use their Google accounts with Windows Phones and sync their data seamlessly.
