Calendar unable to sync with Google calendar after recent update

Hi everyone,
 
After the recent update to the calendar (Version 10.1.00.9),  it does not sync with my Google calendar (and my wife's) anymore.
 
Previously I have added both my Google account and my wife's Google account in the calendar settings, so any Google calendar updates that we do on our respective phones are accurately reflected on our phones through our calendar app (I chose to use the Samsung calendar).
 
After the latest update, whenever myself or my wife add or edit any new events on our Google calendars, I am unable to see these changes reflected on the Samsung calendar anymore.
 
I had encountered such issue before and the solution is
1) Disable the linked Google accounts and add them again
2) Press "Sync Now"
 
However, I can do neither of the steps above in this latest version. It does not allow me to disable the acccounts (only can add new accounts), and the "Sync Now" feature is also greyed out. 
 
I am using a Samsung S8+.
 
Appreciate all the kind souls who can help. Thanks!

Hi, 

 

Have you gotten any answers to your inquiry?  Were you able to figure out how to sync your calendars?  I'm having the same exact problem as you and can't find any solutions!

I had the same problem.  I went to device care/battery/power saving and then I switched from medium power saving to optimized. Now the sync button is no longer grayed out. Let me know if that works for youSmiley Happy

Re: Calendar unable to sync with Google calendar after recent update

My "Sync ow" button works, and I see the little pop up that says "Syincing" but the calendars are not synced. I used to have synchronizations among my Galaxy Calendar, Google Calendar on my PC, and Outlook Calendar on my PC. I've tried free apps that claim to accomplish this, I even bought some crappy product called "Sync2" which does not work.

I am facing the same issue, Sync now is Grayed out. Also, there is no option to change the auto sync time, why I don't know. Hopefully it will be resolved in the next update.

 

This is how I was able to sync my calendar manually.

 

1) settings
2) accounts
3) click on the account you like to sync (for me it was my Gmail account)
4) click on sync account
5) turn Off and On Contacts, Calendar, etc.

Same here, sync is greyed out, very inconvenient
Thanks for the above work around which works but is cumbersome

This works!  It has to do with the power saving mode you are in.

I tried this, and I get the message that it was successful, but there is still no synchronization.
