What is Google Sync?

Google Sync uses Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to let your users synchronize their corporate 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. G Suite, Drive for Work, Education, and Government domains can enforce security policies on Google Sync devices. To learn more, see Manage your organization's mobile devices.

Which devices support Google Sync?

  • Read Known Issues with iOS before enabling Google Sync with iOS devices.
  • Setting up a new ActiveSync account on a user's device might remove existing data on the device. Back up the user's data before you set up Google Sync on the device.
