  1. People app not syncing google contacts


    I have the release Windows 10. I have successfully linked my google account, and mail and calendar seem to work fine. But not the people (contacts) app. The account is listed in People, I can tell it to sync, get no error message, but no contacts arrive. Am I missing something?

    :)

  2. Win 10 PEOPLE app not sync'ing with Google contacts

    Sign in to Google Contact and label all contact as "My Contacts". Try to reconfigure your account and see if that helps. You may also check this link: How

  3. Win 10 PEOPLE app not sync'ing with Google contacts

    I ran into the same problem yesterday after I reset my phone and restored from a recent backup. Google emails and calendar synced fine but not contacts.

    I performed the following steps to get the sync to work again:

    1. Removed the Google account from the phone by going to Settings -> Accounts -> Email & app accounts.

    2. Logged into my Google account using a web browser and revoked access to
    Microsoft
    and Windows apps.

    3. In the Google account settings, turned off Access to insecure apps.

    4. In the Google account settings, turned off Two-factor authentication as well.

    5. Restarted the Windows phone.

    6. Open the People app, went to Settings and added the Google account as a
    Google account.

    When the phone synced this time, it was able to sync contacts, calendar and emails just fine.

    People app not syncing google contacts

    I had a very similar issue, in such that only few contacts synced. What I found was, that MS does ONLY sync the contact which are labeled "My contacts" all others in the Google Contacts Manager are ignored!
    Highly annoying that one...but solvable
    Simply go into Google contacts and assign back all the contact you have to the "My contacts" group and all will be well (hopefully People app not syncing google contacts :)

    I know this is an old thread, but since doing a clean install of anniversary update (1607) x64, I am having the same issue as the OP in that there is no way my Google contacts will show up in the People App and yet they are fine in mail and calendar. I have checked all security settings both MS and Google ends but to no avail. Anyone else having this issue and if so, how is it solved?

    up for this.
    I also can't see my Google Contacts in People app despite having it checked in "Filter contacts".

    I have the same problem on new Windows 10 phone, Lumia 650.
    Calendar and mail both working fine. 'People' however, does not get contacts from my Google account.
    I have two older phones, both Lumia 635 running Windows 8.1 Update, and they both work and synchronise with my Google contacts.
    Tech guy in phone shop baffled, tried just about everything (all of which I had already tried!) to no avail!
    Someone must know what is going on?

    People app not syncing google contacts

    This worked. It's funny, I had a 30 min chat session with a Microsoft "Tech" this afternoon which I finally ended in frustration because he didn't even know you could add a Google account to Outlook. Thanks for the tip.

    All of my Google contacts are under the "My Contacts" label, so I rule this one out.

    Is there any way to purge cache of the People app?

    People app not syncing google contacts

    I've uninstalled it which I presume would clear the cache and then re-installed it from the store and it made no difference.
    Plus I did a clean install of Win 10 and the People App wouldn't sync Google contacts right from the start so I drought if the App cache is the problem.

    For what it's worth, I tried adding a new contact via the People app to see if it would sync with my Google account, but the people app crashed.

  15. I too have the exact same problem as you. Then I disabled POP. Then contacts synced like a charm with my people app.
