Google Sync is a synchronization service from Google that provides over-the-air synchronization of Gmail, Google Contacts, and Google Calendar with PC and mobile device Mail, Calendar and Address Book applications. It uses Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® to let service users synchronize their Google Apps mail, contacts, and calendars to their mobile devices, wherein the users can also set up or customize the alerts for incoming messages and upcoming meetings. Google Sync works with PC, Mac, Linux, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian S60, iPhone, iPad, Windows Mobile, and other devices. Google Sync was announced in February 2009.
Google Sync is a bidirectional service. Changes made on one device will be backed up to the user's Google Account. All other Google data on devices sharing that same Google account will be automatically synchronized as well. In case the user's Mobile Device is lost, the data is still securely stored.
Google Sync provides seamless over-the-air synchronization for many Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Palm, Pocket PC devices and with Microsoft Outlook.
