In this tutorial, we will learn how to sync Google Calendar on Android devices. Google Calendar is a powerful tool that allows you to keep track of your events, appointments, and important dates.

By syncing your Google Calendar with your Android device, you can access and manage your calendar on the go. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open Settings
To begin, unlock your Android device and navigate to the Settings app. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the gear icon.

Step 2: Accounts
In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the section labeled “Accounts” or “Users & accounts.” Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Add Account
Next, you will see a list of accounts associated with your Android device. Look for an option that says “Add account” or something similar. Tap on it to continue.

Step 4: Google
In the Add Account menu, select “Google” from the list of available account types. If you don’t see this option, it may be located under a different category such as “Personal” or “Cloud and accounts.”

Step 5: Sign In
Now, enter your Google account email address and tap “Next.” Then, enter your password and tap “Next” again.

Step 6: Select Sync Options
After signing in, you will be presented with a list of Google services that can be synced with your device. Find and enable the toggle switch next to “Calendar” or “Google Calendar.” You may also have options for syncing other data such as contacts or emails – feel free to enable those if desired.

Note: If you don’t see the Calendar option in this step, it’s possible that your device manufacturer has customized the settings menu. In that case, look for a similar option related to account syncing or app sync.

Step 7: Calendar App
Once you’ve enabled calendar syncing, exit the Settings app and open your preferred calendar app on your Android device. Most Android devices come pre-installed with Google Calendar, but you may also use a third-party calendar app if you prefer.

Step 8: Account Selection
In the calendar app, tap on the menu icon (usually represented by three horizontal lines or dots) to open the settings menu. Look for an option that allows you to choose which calendars to display.

Step 9: Select Google Calendar
Within the calendar selection menu, you should see a list of available calendars. Look for your Google account or email address and make sure it is selected. If there is a checkbox next to your account name, ensure it is checked.

Step 10: Sync Frequency
Finally, exit the settings menu and check if your Google Calendar events are now visible in the calendar app. By default, most Android devices automatically sync data at regular intervals. However, if you want to manually sync or adjust the sync frequency, you can do so in the settings of your specific calendar app.


Congratulations! You have successfully synced Google Calendar on your Android device.

With this synchronization in place, you can easily access and manage your events and appointments wherever you go. Remember to keep your Google account credentials secure and regularly update your device’s software for optimal performance.
