Transfer Google Contacts

Google does not offer a way to transfer your contacts automatically. The best way to do so is by exporting all of them as CSV files and then importing them into the new Google account.

This feature can be particularly useful if you have an old Google account that you’re not using often and would like to transfer all your contacts to a new Google account. You should also transfer your previous contacts to your new phone by exporting them from your old Android device. The process is pretty straightforward and should ideally be completed without any complications. To make sure everything goes smoothly, please follow the instructions below and get in touch if you’re having any trouble.

  • Find your contacts.

Within Gmail, you can access your contacts by clicking on the Contacts tab. Here, you will see a list of contacts. If you would like to move these to a different account, click the Transfer button in order to finalize this process.

  •  Select contacts

Click the box next to the contacts you would like to sync with another Google account. To copy all of these contacts, click the box and select ‘select all’ on the drop-down list.

  • Latest editions

The new version of Google Contacts does not allow exporting contacts which means you need to first export from the older version before being able to trade it to the new one.

  •  Export

From the older version of Google Contacts, you can export contacts in a csv file. All contacts will be exported and you’ll need to select Google’s CSV format before exporting the file.

  • Save list

 If you want to save your contact list, save it to a local location on your computer like “Google Contacts” so you can find it easily.
