How to Share Office 365 Calendar With Google Calendar

By Deena Anreise | Updated: 11 Nov, 2021

If you manage a busy schedule, you probably already use Office 365 (now Microsoft 365) or Google Calendar to stay on top of things.

Or both.

Many people use Google Calendar for their personal lives and Outlook at work — or vice versa. You can combine the two and view all of your events in one place.

The process is a little murky, but it is possible to share your Office 365 Outlook calendar with your Google calendar.

There are numerous reasons to do this, including:

  • Reducing the time you spend flipping between calendars
  • Giving yourself a central view of your entire schedule
  • Preventing accidentally double-booking yourself
  • Reducing stress
