Sometimes it’s tricky trying to figure out how multiple applications — made by different vendors — can work together. For example, how the heck do you set an Android® mobile device to view Calendar events? Believe me, I tried a few workarounds before realizing the answer is pretty simple. Let’s step through the process:

First, you need to publish the calendar you want to view on your phone.

  1. On your computer, log in to Calendar and click Settings.
  2. Click Share Calendars, and then click Enable Publish URL.
  3. Click Copy to Clipboard.

Next, open the Google calendar associated with the Gmail® address your Android device is synced to.

  1. Below Other Calendars, click Add, and then select Add by URL.

  2. In the URL feild, paste the URL you copied for your published Calendar, and then click Add Calendar.

Now, you just need to sync your mobile device.

  1. From the home screen on your Android device, tap the App Drawer.
  2. Tap Settings, and then tap Accounts & sync.
  3. Tap your Gmail account to open the account manager.
  4. Tap Sync Calendar once to deactivate it, and then tap Sync Calendar again to synchronize.

And that’s it — you should now see your Calendar events in your calendar view on your Android device.

    Fantastic! This was helpful and it worked – for the most part. I can\’t figure out how to get changes to the calendar to show up on the summary window of the calendar on my mobile device. The events are present; however, to view them, I have to open the calendar – I\’d like to be able to see them at a glance. Also, any changes made to my calendar on the mobile device do not show up on my Go Daddy calendar on my desktop. Any solutions?

    @Perduco – Thanks for the feedback! As of right now, the sync feature on Android devices is only a one-way sync. Unfortunately, any updates made through your mobile device won’t be represented on your desktop calendar. I know our developers are working to create a full sync though – so keep your eyes open.
