To make sure that you always have access to your Google Calendar, the Mountain View-based search engine giant made sure the app works with numerous desktop applications and mobile devices. Like Apple’s iPhone and iPad, iCal, Blackberry Android, Nokia/Symbian, and last but not least, Windows Mobile phones.

One app that Google Calendar did not play well with used to be Outlook 2010. I say “used to be” because Google recently announced that Outlook 2010 support has been added to Google Calendar Sync. So if you’re using Outlook 2010 and want to keep it in sync with your Google Calendar, you can do so now.

“To start syncing your calendar with Outlook 2010, download Google Calendar Sync version 0.9.3.6. Once you install it, a Settings window will appear. Enter your account’s email address and password, choose your sync option and sync frequency, and you’re done!” explained Alice Brown on behalf of the Google Calendar Team.

Brown explained that Office 2010 support was something that users have been avidly asking for. The words that she used were “out top feature request.” With so many people asking for this feature, it doesn’t surprise me that Google responded by adding Outlook 2010 support to Google Calendar Sync.

There are two things you need to note though. First up, please note that you still need to download and install Google Calendar 0.9.3.6 even if you already have Google Calendar Sync; otherwise you will not be able to sync your Google Calendar with Outlook 2010. Second up, please note that for now, only the 32-bit version of Outlook 2010 is supported. Outlook 2010 comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions; Google Calendar sync 0.9.3.6 only supports the 32-bit version.

If you would like to get Google Calendar Sync 0.9.3.6, you can download it here.
