HOW TO SHARE GOOGLE CONTACTS WITH OTHER GMAIL USERS

Google, unfortunately, doesn’t allow its users to share Google Contact with other Gmail users.

While there are a few manual processes through which contact sharing is possible but those are definitely going to take a lot of your time so to get rid of those complicated processes, we’ll guide you the easiest & quickest way to share your Gmail contacts.

Why Contact Sharing?

  • As an event organizer, you can share contacts of all vendors and important people associated with your crew.
  • You can share your colleague’s contact list with your friends.
  • As a salesperson, you can share contacts of your new or prospective clients with your sales team.
  • As a Marketing agency, you can share contacts of all your clients with your team so everyone has access.
  • As a support team, you can share contacts of all your customers with other members.
  • Within an organization, you can share a contact list of all team members.

How to Share your Google Contact?

Follow the steps mentioned below and watch the video to see how you can share Google contacts with Gmail users

STEP 1: Create a label/group in Google Contacts

  • Login to Google Contacts with your Gmail credentials.
  • Create multiple labels for a different set of contacts.
  • Add relevant contacts to each label. (You can also assign multiple labels to a single contact)

STEP 2: Share your Google Contacts Labels with other users

  • Login to ContactBook. (Install ContactBook from here if you haven’t yet)
  • Click on a particular label that you wish to share.
  • Select “Share with users” option from the right side of the panel.
  • Fill in the email address of users with whom you want to share that label and click on ‘Share’.

And it’s done. Your label has been shared with those users.

If you make any changes in any of the contacts, it will instantly reflect in their devices too. All your contacts will be updated in all the devices with the same email address.

With a simple & easy to use interface, ContactBook allows a hassle-free contact sharing experience.

Another tedious way to share contacts is to IMPORT/EXPORT CSV FILES

  • Create an XLS sheet that includes all the contact details.
  • Export that sheet as CSV file and share it with other users so that they can upload the same file manually in their Google Contacts.

This is definitely not the preferred way as it requires manual handling & consumes a lot of time. Also, there is no way to update contacts automatically.

Conclusion

To wrap it up, you now know which way to choose when it comes to sharing Google Contacts. It’s very important to understand the significance of contact sharing and choose the perfect tool, no matter if it’s for professional or personal use.

Sign in to ContactBook and start sharing contacts in less than five minutes.
