How to transfer contacts to a new Android phone

  Application App on Android.

Android gives you some options to transfer your contacts to a new device. By default, everything should be synchronized when you create a new device, but even if synchronization is disabled, moving your contacts is easy.

The Easy Way: Synchronize With Your Google Account

Almost all Android devices sold outside of China are shipped with Google services, including the ability to synchronize your contacts between devices. This should be enabled by default when you sign in with your Google Account, but here's how you look. We are writing this guide with a Pixel 2 XL running Android 9.0, but it should look like other Android devices. We also use the Google Contacts apps store, which you can download from the Play Store. These steps cannot be the same in other contact files, so if you have problems, we recommend using Google Contacts.

Start by opening the Settings app and tapping "Accounts".


Tap your Google Account.

 Google Account Settings

Touch "Account Sync."
