Google offers a wide range of features with its Contacts app for an Android smartphone. Apart from storing contacts, Google Contacts also allows users to back up any contacts they have on their phone or SIM card.
If somehow you lose contacts available on your phone, you can always restore those contacts to your new device.
However, if you save your contacts to your Google Account, they will immediately appear on your phone after you sign in. Additionally, you can export your contacts to another Google account, which makes it simple to transfer your contacts to a different device. Here’s how you can do it:
Tap on the Fix & Manage option available at the bottom.
Hit the Export to file button.
Select the accounts you want to export contacts from.
Tap on the Export to .VCF file option.
Turning on/off automatic backup
You’ll be prompted to choose whether or not to back up your data when you first set up your Google Account on your mobile phone. You can change this setting. It will save all your contacts to your Google Account and you can restore your contacts anytime you want in case of any damage.
Open the Settings app on your smartphone.
Tap on the System Settings.
Hit the Backup button.
Turn the toggle on or off for Backup to Google Drive.
