On my Samsung Phone with Andorid 11 and OneUI Core 3.1 I have 2 google accounts. Lets call them ACC1 (private) and ACC2 (corporate).

By default when I add new contacts, phone add them to google ACC2.

Very often I change the destination account in time when I create new contact, but also very often forget to change them.

I do not see possibilty to change account after the creation process is done.

As I have them both (google accounts) configured on my Phone I want to ask:

How to easily move specific contact from google ACC2 to ACC1 ?

  • It started to get more compiled. I have two contacts both with the same name. 1 stored in the phone. 2 saved in google contacts. How to check with the "Google contacts" application, ie without logging into the web, which contact is saved in the cloud and which on the device? I just want to select the correct contact on my phone and remove it from the device. Commented Jul 6, 2021 at 11:29

If you want to copy multiple accounts you can use Google Contacts web UI and their export/import function:

Step 1: Export existing Gmail contacts

  • On your computer, go to Google Contacts
  • At the left, click Export.
  • Select which contacts to export.
  • Select Google CSV.
  • Click Export.
  • At the top right, click your profile picture and then Sign out.

Step 2: Import the file

  • On your computer, go to Google Contacts, then sign in with your other Gmail account.
  • At the left, click Import.
  • Click Select File.
  • Choose your file.
  • Click Import.


  • Yes, I know this feature, but very often I want to move single specific contact, which I added few minutes before by mistake, and I do not want to especially login,export,delete,import via browser. It is too time consuming to do this several times a month. So I was wondering that maybe there is some utility program to transfer contacts between accounts, or just some option in the system that I don't see. Commented Jun 21, 2021 at 13:06
