Have you been wondering the best way to sync your Android calendar with your Thunderbird calendar (via Lightning). Well, you’ve come to the right place!
I personally know that I’ve been looking for this tool. Here’s how I like to sync my Android calendar with my Thunderbird…
Step 1: Download Provider for Google Calendar
Step 2: Open Thunderbird and go to the add-ons menu. (Tools > Add-ons)
Step 3: Click Install and then locate the newly downloaded add-on, after Thunderbird has restarted, go to your calendar
Step 4: On the left side, where your calendars are listed, right-click and select “New Calendar,” click “Network Calendar” and then “Google Calendar.” Stop here and proceed to Firefox
Step 5: Open your calendar that is associated with your Android phone and in the upper right corner click Settings > Calendar Settings
Step 6: Click the “Calendars” tab and then click on the email address associated with your Android phone
Step 7: Near the bottom you will see “Private Address,” click on XML and copy the URL shown on the screen and go back to Thunderbird where you stopped on Step 6
Step 8: Paste the URL of your “Private Calendar” here and click Next
Your Android calendar should now appear in your Thunderbird calendar. They will sync in both directions making it nice and easy to add/remove/edit your events.
