To avoid losing your contact list because of problems with your chip, device, or one of them, you can save your calendar to your Gmail account. So all your saved numbers are available on any Android device you have access to or anywhere you can sign in to your email. Here’s how to save contacts in Gmail.

How to transfer contacts from phone to Gmail

Follow the steps below to import or export your phone’s chip calendar to your Gmail account:

  1. Open the Contacts app on your phone;
  2. Tap the top left menu, the three bars;
  3. Select “Manage contacts”;
  4. Tap “Import or export contacts”;
  5. Select “Import” if you want to transfer contacts from your chip to Gmail, or “export” to migrate your Google calendar to your phone chip.

Now your saved list only on your chip can be transferred to Gmail and accessed whenever you want. When you switch devices to a new Android, your contacts will also be automatically transferred when you sign in with your Google profile.
