Do It Through Gmail
To start, log in to the Gmail account that all of your contacts are in. Click on the “Gmail” drop-down icon on the left side of the screen. Click on “Contacts.”
Next, click on the “More” drop-down menu and choose “Export.” Chose the group that you want to sync or select “All contacts.”
Clicking “All contacts” will export every contact that is connected to that account. Choosing a group will give you a drop-down menu that will show you a list of your different contact groups.
After choosing which contacts you want to sync, click on “Google CSV.” Then, select “Export.” After clicking this, pick a place on your computer where you want to save these contacts and click “Save.”
You can delete these contacts from your computer once the sync is complete.
After exporting your contacts, go into your other Gmail account and choose the “Gmail” menu again. Click on “Contacts” and then “More.” This time, you’re going to want to choose “Import.”
To import, select “Choose File” and then import the file that you have saved on your computer. Then, all you have to do is click “Open” and “Import.”
