Setting up Google Mail + MS Teams + Email connector

I'm a bit desperate here, so maybe someone might help...

So our email is hosted on Google Workspace (MX pointing to Google), but for client meetings we sometimes also use have to use MS Teams. Our employees get invited to multiple organizations (clients) and we need to have a flow where our employee gets invited for Teams event, receives email notification and is able to join the meeting. And also send Teams invites to other people.
I also have a connector in Exchange which relays all emails for the domain (InternalRelay domain) to Google, so any email originating from Microsoft would find it way to our Google Mail.

But my understanding is our employees need Exchange license (or at least it providers more meeting features), but when I assign Exchange license to our employees, then the connector doesn't relay the email to Google, it only gets delivered to Exchange Mailbox of the user (which I don't even want). I could set up forwarding for each Exchange mailbox but I don't really want to do that (how could I even forward to the same email address and hope it would get delivered to Google).

What would be the right approach here, how to set it up to simply not have to deal with any mail related topics on Microsoft and have connector relay all email to Google?

Is there a way to dich Exchange and have all the scheduling/inviting/... done in Google Calendar? There is a Teams-Add-On for Google Calendar, but would it even work without Exchange license?

Thank you

    Hi @Ammar Aganovic

    If the email addresses in Exchange Online are exactly the same as the email addresses in Gmail, the situation may become very complicated and there is no easy solution for this scenario.

    There is a Teams-Add-On for Google Calendar, but would it even work without Exchange license?

    You can sign-in an account which has no Exchange license, while the meetings created on Gmail calendar will not be synced to the calendar in Teams.
