How to Sync your Phone Calls to Google Calendar with Android

This tutorial will show you how to log all of your incoming, outgoing and/or missed calls on your Android phone, to your Google Calendar.

There are a couple of ways to do this, we’re going with the easy one – which happens to be the “free” one too (no paid apps involved).

Using a very handy little app that we’ve covered before, you can have all of your incoming, outgoing and missed calls all logged to your Google Calendar. Here’s how –

  1. Download and install IFTTT from the Google Play Store. In a nutshell, IFTTT is a service that connects multiple services together with “if this then that” actions. Once it’s installed, tap the IFTTT icon on your Android home screen or App list.

  3. You’ll need to sign up for an account or just sign in with your Google, Facebook, or Apple account. Once you’ve done that, tap the Explore button from the bottom of the IFTTT app window.

  5. In the search field, enter the phrase calls to calendar and select one of the three results from the user/author shevchIncoming calls to Google calendar, Outgoing calls to Google calendar or Missed calls to Google calendar. Of course you can use all three, but they need to be enabled one at a time.

  9. First you’ll need to authenticate with Google so that IFTTT can access your Google Calendar. Select the account you want to use.

  15. Make sure that it’s set to Connected and you’re all done! If you want to log outgoing or missed calls as well, return to the search results page and activate the other two applets.

  17. The Applet only runs 1-2 times daily, so the calls are not logged to your calendar in real-time. You can try using other applets that are supposed to log calls to Google Calendar as well, but they’re sometimes hit-and-miss.
