  • Microsoft adds Google Calendar and Contacts support to Outlook 2016 for Mac

Keep in mind that these features are only available as part of the Office Insider program for the time being, but they will be rolled out to users in the coming weeks when testing ends.

Microsoft has announced a new update aimed at Office Insider users for Outlook 2016 for Mac, which includes better support for Google services, including Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar. While Outlook 2016 for Mac had an ability to manage Gmail accounts, support for Google Calendar was missing.

This support acts as a boost to allow Gmail users seamlessly transition to Outlook, and expand its user base.

Office 2016 users who are a part of the Office Inside Fast Community will now be able to add, delete, and edit events or calendar entries to their Google Calendar account. All of the changes you make in Outlook on your Mac will sync across your devices - including Gmail on your iPhone or Android, as well as the Outlook mobile apps.

"We are still fine-tuning the Google account experience in Outlook for Mac and will provide regular updates to Insiders before releasing the features more broadly", the firm says. Additional advanced features will become available in the future. Focused Inbox dissects your email into two folders - Focused and Inbox. Outlook 2016 for Mac also now supports the same rich experiences for travel reservations and package deliveries that have been arriving for other Microsoft email clients. Not everyone will gain immediate access to the complete Google account support right away, however, as Microsoft will be monitoring the experience and inviting specific users. This update will enable Outlook for Mac to sync with Google Calendar and Contacts.
