••• SYNCS GROUPS! ••• SYNCS AUTOMATICALLY! ••• #1 IN DOWNLOADS & REVIEWS FOR 5+ YEARS! With ”Contacts Sync for Google Gmail,” you can quickly & easily sync your Gmail & Mac contacts so that you can have access to your contacts wherever you go. This app distinguishes itself with its reliability, ease of use, speed, and with a true "2-way sync" that merges changes made to both your Gmail & Mac contacts. This is the #1 app for syncing Gmail contacts with Mac both in terms of downloads & reviews. Also of significance, this app syncs contact groups with Google.

With the customizability that this app provides, it can be used in a number of creative ways. For example, you can backup your Mac contacts to Gmail, you can sync iCloud or Exchange contacts with Gmail, or you can perform syncs in one direction only (such as Gmail to Mac).

  • This app corrects a macOS bug!

    At some point in the past year my Google contacts would no longer appear on eithe of my two Macs. I was keeping all of my contacts only in Google so this presented a problem with Messages and other Contacts dependant apps. I decided to try this app and now all of my Google contacts and groups are successfully syncing with my iCloud contacts. I did remove the Google Contacts connection from my settings to avoid duplicates. Keep in mind, to sync more than 40 contacts you’ll need to upgrade for $5. Well worth it in my opinion.
  • Good Data Management Application

    By NORVA User
    I was skeptical about the ability of the application to synchronize my MacBook’s contacts with Gmail. The interface is basic, but intuitive. Since I have a MacBook with a touch bar and I do not use the fingerprint unlock feature, I had difficulty in paying for the upgrade because of a request for the touch ID. Once I added a fingerprint to the touchbar, I was able to resolved that issue, and purchased the $4.99 upgrade. The application worked liked a charm and now my Android phone and MacBook can live in harmony as it relates to the contacts in my address book.
  • Just fixed and back to working great

    Was broken for several weeks, but seems to be fixed now.
  • I was lost, but now I am found...

    By Chuck from Santa Cruz
    I really had no idea how to solve the issues of having a GMAIL account and having additional address accounts on my Mac, but I believe that Contacts Sync is the ideal answer. I like how the app prevents you from doing stupid stuff, and guides you to do things in the correct order. Highly recommended.
  • It gets the job done

    I recently switched to an Android phone and needed to get my contacts into Google and keep them in sync with my Mac. This worked like a charm. Nice little utility!
  • Great Sync App! Fast and Works!!!

    By Meridian Driver
    Since Apple refuses to come out with a touchscreen laptop I bought a Microsoft Surface 2017. It’s great. That said, I had to figure out how to keep my contacts in sync between my Apple devices and that. So I got this nifty app and it works and works FAST. I use Google Contacts as the go between, so this app syncs iCloud contacts with Google Contacts. Then on the Surface I’m able to sync Outlook with Google Contacts. Great!!!
  • Very helpfull. I use it perhaps once a week

    By alanklement
    It’s crazy that syncing contacts, in genreal, isn’t someimtes Apple, Google,… just don’t do naturaly…This helps.
  • Not Great

    By Shaneaf
    Contacts from iCloud all dumped into “Other” contacts folder within gmail instead of main contacts folder. Also, most contact photos from iCloud did not transfer to gmail.
  • Totally useless app

    By hondaguy65
    Useless to me. It won’t allow me to purchase needed upgrade to allow syncing of all my cnoacts. When purchase screen appears and I click on purchase upgrade nothing happens. Removed from computer.
  • Excellent app! Life saving!

    By great app and cust support
    This is an excellent app, and worthy of the life saving label. I have over 3800 contacts with multiple entries and decide to move away from iCloud. I bought this app after doing my research and looking at several competing apps. I cannot say enouht about the tech support above and beyond the call of duty. I sync 6 devices that include 2 MacBook Pros, iPhone, iPad, iMac and a Google Pixelbook. Tech support was unfailingly patient with my repeated requests and knew the questions to ask. Cannot recommend it enough.
