This article explains how to sync your contacts, including Google contacts, with Microsoft Teams in Windows 11.
The Microsoft Teams app is a communication platform that helps bring people together to get things done. Users can set up meetings, chats, video calls, communities, and more.
When you sign in with a Microsoft account, the default calendar that Teams connects to is your Outlook calendar. You can connect your Google calendar to Teams instead if you have a Google account.
There are many settings one can enable in the Microsoft Teams app. You can connect your Google calendar, turn the camera and mic on or off on the lock screen, turn read receipts on or off, auto start Teams, disable Teams chat, and more.
You can also sync your contacts with Microsoft Teams from different sources.
Syncing your contacts with Microsoft Teams can be useful for several reasons. First, it can help you easily find and communicate with your contacts directly within the Teams app. This eliminates the need to switch between apps or platforms to stay in touch with your contacts.
Additionally, syncing your contacts can help you quickly set up meetings or calls with your contacts, as their contact information will already be available within Teams. It can also streamline your communication and collaboration efforts, making staying productive and connected with your network easier.
Sync your contacts with Microsoft Teams
As mentioned above, you can sync your contacts with Microsoft Teams from different sources, including Google contacts.
Here’s how to do that.
First, launch the app by clicking the Start menu and selecting it on the All Apps list.
The Teams mini window app will open when you launch it at first. Click the expansion button on the menu bar to open the full Teams window.
Click the Settings and more ( …) button next to your profile picture in the full Teams window and select Settings on the menu.
On the Settings page, select the People tab on the left. On the right, click the Manage button under Sync contacts.
Select the source from which you want to sync contacts on the People -> synced contacts page. By default, Google, Skype, Outlook.com, and your mobile device can sync.
Click the Sync link on the app tile you want to sync contacts from. If your contacts are on your mobile device, click “From your mobile device.”
A QR code will appear. Scan it with your phone to allow Teams to connect and download your contacts.
If you change your mind anytime, you can turn off contact syncing. All synced contacts will be removed except some synced phone contacts on Teams.
Google contacts may still be available in other Microsoft apps and services. To completely remove all Google data from Microsoft apps and services, visit Privacy settings.
Exit the Team app when you are done.
That should do it!
