Microsoft Windows Phone to support IMAP for using Gmail

The Verge received confirmation from Microsoft that the firm will ensure that Windows Phone users will still be able to sync their Google email via IMAP, as Google recently announce it would remove support for ActiveSync. Microsoft did not mention whether it plans to support CardDAV and CalDAV on Windows Phone to fully rectify the situation.
Microsoft has officially responded to Google's planned Gmail ActiveSync removal in a statement issued to The Verge today. The company says it has been left "surprised and disappointed" by Google's decision that will affect the syncing of personal Gmail contacts and calendar for new WIndows Phone devices. Microsoft briefly responded to Google's decision late last year, but today's statement appears to indicate that the company has no plans to support Gmail contacts and calendar sync initially.

"Like many, we are surprised and disappointed that Google wants to make it more difficult for customers to connect their accounts to their devices. If you want better email, especially for your phone or tablet, now is a perfect time to join the millions who have already made the choice to upgrade to Outlook.com. Windows Phone users will still be able to sync their Google email via IMAP."
