Enable connecting and syncing with Google calendar
Merge with calendars from other providers (e.g. Google)
I would like to link my Google Calendars also and get an overview on all my Events in the same view.

I would like to be able to view events from one calendar on the other:
View Outlook 365 on Google Calendar
View Google Calendar on Outlook 365.
This would be at least for display, so I can quickly see on each calendar, what I'm doing on the other (work vs personal).
Currently, I'm able to import the events from Outlook 365 into Google Calendar, but it stops syncing after a while, and no new events are added.

Viewing the Google Calendar no longer functions. Also, it would be awesome if the google calendar could be integrated with the outlook calendar so that both Outlook & Google events could be viewed on the same calendar. That capability would make Outlook my main tool for all calendar needs.
Not Sync O365 and Google Calendars.
I add a calendar ics link to Google Calendar, but events are not displayed.
It is unbelievable that there is still no reliable two-way sync between Outlook and Google Calendars. I assume this is some extremely misguided resistance on the part of Microsoft, thinking that if they allow syncing, more people will simply use Google Cal to view everything.
In fact, I suspect most of your customers have a situation like mine: Outlook is a work product, and Google is a personal product. We're going to keep using both. We just want to be able to keep track in BOTH PLACES of critical appointments and availability. Right now, even if I subscribe in Outlook to my personal calendar on Google, it does not update in a reliable or timely manner, and it also does not give me an option to show my status as busy (or anything else) for subscribed events.
Let me give you a use case example of the problems I currently have. I can't access my Outlook calendar on my phone because my company security does not allow it. That means when I schedule a follow-up visit at the doctor's office front desk, I put it on my Google calendar, which I do have access to on my phone. I need that appointment to 1. RELIABLY show up on my Outlook calendar IN A TIMELY MANNER, and 2. show my status as BUSY in outlook, especially in the scheduling assistant. Right now, instead, I have to remember later to copy it by hand to my outlook calendar in order to make sure it is accounted for in my schedule. This rather defeats the point of having any automatic integration at all!
At best, the subscribed calendar can only serve as a reminder to update both calendars separately, but at worst it confuses me into thinking I have already added something to my outlook calendar that I haven't, and when I do remember, it is obnoxious that I then have to see those events in double. I could uncheck the subscribed calendar to not view the double events--but then I wouldn't see the single ones to remember to update them!
Please, it's ridiculously unprofessional that you do not have a properly working integration with the most popular calendar application in the world. This isn't an "icing on the cake" feature--in a networked world, this is basic functionality. If my office did not require use of your product, I would never use a calendar app lacking this basic support for integrating with other calendars.

Why is there not a way to (just!) see my outlook calendar in google calendar? I really like the ms environment, **** I have a surface book and the microsoft launcher on my phone is great. But my smart watch (from a big manufacturer) can only access and show events that are in the native calendar app. Its really annoying that i cannot use this feature of smart watch, because it pretty basic function. So does ms want me to stop using their product and switch to using google calendar?
I want to sync outlook and google calendar! So I edit one of them, the other can be updated!
Hi , I am having issue with syncing the outlook calendrer with this link : https://my.inventorybase.com/generate/calendar?key=93e4fe2dd711302a64c3848b6e72655c48a4d3e2594017c46847a67f5cb37f3f
It's absolutely ridiculous that syncing between outlook calendars and google calendars is not an option. When you consider that google runs android, what does MS expect its windows users to do? Install an outlook app on my phone for my outlook calendar? NOT going to happen! I need quick convenience with my calendar(S) - and once MS gets a clue and makes this change, they will ultimately benefit hugely by making that inroad to android.

I would like to appointments to my calendar solely using the web browser. I don't want the .ics file. Google's option to add item from an email to it's calendar should be emulated.

I'm here to agree to a below anonymous user: Enable Google Calendar two way sync (within the Outlook app). This is done in the Outlook iOS app and it works awesome! It'd be great/logical to have the same function in the webapp where I do most of my calendaring.
I cannot load google calendar to my hotmail account
Please add feature to use google calendar events in Outlook 365
Cannot find the calendar sync settings. I need to wipe the online calendar and repopulate it. Presently, my online calendar has double-entries of everything on my desktop calendar. Incredibly frustrating!!!

Import Google Calendar into Outlook default Calendar
Enable Google Calendar two way sync.
We are only able to subscribe to google calendar, which means changes in google are visible in outlook, but changes in outlook won't be uodated in google. I prefer to use google service, so the option to sync the two both ways is something I would need to have in order to use outlook as the client

Not all of my events are showing. It syncs events I've added to my phone, but not the other way. Also, it shows the previous week when I view it on a Saturday. I think it should show the 7 days starting on the day selected.
Calendar syncing doesn't work.
I agree completely. Let us decide to sync calendar items to default android calendar app like you did with contacts.
Some S8 features works best using default calendar app, thus we need to be able to sync our OL app calendar with that, without having a second sync in place.
Outlook 365 syncing ALL mail folders and also Calendar across ALL devices (Android, PC, etc.) would be wonderful. This is what I and many others expected when we made the decision to purchase and use Outlook 365. When will this functionality become available?

It's almost impossible to switch from Google to Microsoft calendar on Android phones. I was set to make the big move to Outlook.com, but there's no way to sync the Outlook.com calendar to the native Android calendar app. Yes, I can import, but no way to use Outlook.com calendar in such a way that I can have it sync constantly. This has been the one single factor preventing me from switching to Outlook.com on Android and as such, I will stick with Google Calendar, Gmail, Google contacts, etc. This is very disappointing and kind of surprising given the Outlook.com is luring Gmail users over. Too bad.
So the suggesting is "establish seamless syncing between Outlook.com calendar and Android native Calendar app".
