From a Microsoft Answers post: The default search engine is indeed set by the provider. At the moment, there is no way for the end-user to override this default. Many have asked for this feature, and I really hope we get it in a future update as the current behavior is anything but user-friendly. So there doesn't seem to be an official way at the ...

There is no official Google Hangouts app and may never be due to Google's nearly non-existant support for Windows Phone. There is an API for developer to use so it's possible, but as you've noticed, no real fully featured 3rd party apps for Hangouts exist (yet?). There is also no way to use a web version of Hangouts in Internet Explorer on Windows Phone.

Considering Bing is not just used for mere searching, but also integrates with the marketplace, and have support for places, vision, music and voice-search, replacing it with Google would require a large number of Google Services, and not just the search-engine.

No. Its not possible, unless its totally wiping the phone and flashing onto it an android operating system. Google Play is a marketplace specific to the the Android OS Ecosystem and its variants. Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile (which is the OS on Lumia Phones) are not android based Operating Systems, so no android apps can run on this platform. For ...

Any email account will work with the WP8 email client, regardless of using IMAP, Exchange, POP3. Gmail accounts can use both IMAP and POP3, for the free email as well as for business accounts. So no worries as I am in the same situation and all email accounts work on my HTC 8S.

I do not work for Google but I do not see Google launching the Chrome browser on Windows Phone anytime soon (or ever). If you do want to request, request it on Google Chrome forums where Google has much better chance of seeing your request.

The feature you describe would be covered by "Google Sync" (their name for Exchange ActiveSync), which remains available to set up new Windows Phones with, until 31 July 2013 - it will also be available to set up new devices with after that date if you are a Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government customer.

This is a bug with the calendar app on Windows 10 Mobile. Events created 6 months in advance will not show up. This problem isn't restricted to certain phones or Google calendars. There is an issue submitted in the Windows Feedback app for this problem, which you can vote on.

The GDR2 update which is currently being pushed to devices has CalDAV and CardDAV support for google accounts. You will then be able to sync your account as soon as you get that update.

I was able to resolve this issue and hence sharing here Disable Calendar sync in AT&T920 WP8 GDR3 (i don't think GDR2 or GDR3 matters here) to verify that CALDAV is indeed the issue. When I did this the memory errors (8007000E) went away. Steps I took: 1. I used Microsoft Outlook and Google Apps Sync to get a Local copy of my Google Calendar Data 2. ...

On Windows mobile 10 the default maps app is all you need. It uses the downloaded offline maps and has turn by turn voice guidance without the need of internet connection and by using GPS detection just like the Here app. Imagine the Nokia Here Drive+ part of the default preinstalled microsoft maps app. Now integrated as part of the OS itself to let you ...

I fixed the issue. The issue was from the pictures associated with the contacts at Google so I removed all of the pictures then the sync worked perfect.

It's been a while and nobody seems to have the same issue. But since this question keeps getting votes, I'll just note that the events were not actually changed. They just got pinged.

This is because in Google services, pdf files are opened as a preview within the website by their services and is not displayed by the browser. It appears as a pop-up in the websites. This is similar to a web app. Microsoft Edge mobile version cannot render that type of web pages it seems. The best way is to download the pdf and view it Edge or in another ...
