What is Google Sync?
Google Sync uses Microsoft® Exchange ActiveSync® to let your users synchronize their Google Apps mail, contacts, and calendars to their mobile devices. They can also set up alerts (sound or vibration) for incoming messages and upcoming meetings.
Google Sync is enabled by default on Google Apps domains. Google Apps for Work, Drive for Work, Education, and Government domains can enforce security policies on Google Sync devices. To learn more, see Mobile Management.
