Confirm on XA2.
Google account added, set to only sync the calendar (no Contacts or E-mail), automatically.
It’s never syncing automatically, only when the Calendar app is opened, or when I trigger a sync from the account settings.
Ps: this is not version specific, it has always been like this since I installed Sailfish on the XA2 a year ago.
