While I love my Android devices and the Google ecosystem, I also have my feet firmly planted in the Apple world as well. I spend about half of my time working on an iMac, I have an iPhone in addition to my Android phones, and many of my family and friends are on Apple devices as well. I suspect that many of you are in the same boat. So if you have iCloud calendars that you want to access from Google Calendar, what are you to do? It's actually pretty easy to move that data over. I'll show you how to add an iCloud calendar over to your Google Calendar.

Now your iCloud calendar and previously added events will show up in your Google Calendar view, whether you're accessing it from one of the best Android phones or your desktop web browser. However, if any subsequent changes are made to the iCloud calendar(s), you will need to repeat this process, as they do not stay in sync with each other. If you want to maintain a live connection between the ecosystems, you'll need to download a third-party app from the Google Play store and follow the setup prompts.
