I'm able to add multiple g-calendars from multiple accounts, but it appears that only the root calendar is synced with Windows 8's Metro Calendar app. Is there a way to sync all gmail calendars?

It might not be possible. You could try adding the other calendars on a single calendar, that should depending on the share settings of the other calendars, do what you want. –  Ramhound Aug 21 '12 at 16:28

From a question I asked:

Someone posted a working solution on Microsoft Answers:

  1. Download User Agent Switcher from the Chrome Webstore
  2. Select an iOS device
  3. Go to https://m.google.com/sync/settings/iconfig/welcome?source=mobileproducts
  4. Deactivate Javascript in Settings (Show advanced settings, Privacy > Content settings > Do not allow any site to run JavaScript)
  5. Click your Windows Mail device
  6. In the URL change supportMultiCalendars=false to supportMultiCalendars=true
  7. Submit URL (Press Enter)
  8. Check the boxes for the calendars you'd like to sync
  9. Save
  10. Readd your Google Account to your Windows Calendar app. It now works.
  11. (Re-enable JavaScript in Chrome)

Strange, it works for me and at least 5 others. I wonder if the Google Calendar people caught on. –  Louis Sep 4 '12 at 14:02

I was able to select the different calendars, but they still don't show up on the calendar app. –  KronoS Sep 4 '12 at 18:10

It took a little while, but it eventually worked! Great find. –  KronoS Sep 5 '12 at 16:48

Strange, not working for me. I can see the other calendars on my Windows Phone but not on Windows 8. –  mak Oct 8 '12 at 19:26

This seems to have changed again:

  1. Using Google Chrome, ensure you are signed in to Google
  2. Add User-Agent Switcher from the Chrome Web Store
  3. From the face icon that appears in the toolbar select iPhone
  4. Go to https://m.google.com/sync
  5. All of your devices should now appear (Windows 8 is known as WindowsMail)

That url gives me Not Found Error 404 –  Omar Shahine Dec 14 '12 at 6:28
    
@OmarShahine - Which url exactly. They all worked for me. –  Ramhound Jan 24 '13 at 13:06

Easiest fix is just to import each Google Calendar into a hotmail account. Then when you add this account to the Windows 8 Calendar app not only do they all appear, but they are still organized by color.

If the Google Calendar is modified are the changes reflected by the Hotmail account? –  Louis Nov 2 '12 at 6:36

At the moment, this probably can't be achieved. This same Question has been asked on MS Support and they have replied with a no.

Question

Syncing Multiple Google calendars with New UI Calendar app

Answer

Currently per Google's request for bandwith, Calendar App only Sync root calendar.

Developers on both sides are working on this issue to improve accessibility on this.
