Users of Microsoft products and Google's online calendar and contact services can breathe a sigh of relief. Google has agreed to Microsoft's six-month extension request, meaning the Exchange ActiveSync protocol will continue to function until July 31, rather than being phased out today.

During this time period, Microsoft will be working on a confirmed fix. In other words, Microsoft has decided to support CalDAV and CardDAV, Google's new method of syncing data from their online services. Microsoft has said they will "enable Windows Phone users to continue to connect to Google services after July 31, 2013."

 

Microsoft had tried to move users to their Outlook.com product, saying that it would continue working without a hitch. It's good to see two tech giants working together for the better of the consumer.
