Google Sync for Windows Phone will be stopped on January 30, 2013 – a service that allows you synchronization of Gmail, Google Calendar and Contacts with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.

The company recommends to the users to start using CalDAV, CardDAV and IMAP as a substitute for existing services. The good news is that if you already using the service, it will continue to work on your phone, but it will not be available for all new users. Google Sync also will remain operational for the business customers, governments and all educational organizations.

This can be a serious problem for the owners of Windows Phone devices, as the Microsoft’s platform relies on Exchange ActiveSync for all synchronizations with the products of Google. Apple and Google rely on the CalDAV and CardDAV standarts, but Microsoft does not support any of them.
