Once you’ve set up the Outlook app on your Android device, it’s time to sync your contacts. Follow these steps:

Option 1: Automatic Sync

If you’ve already added an email account in the Outlook app that contains your contacts, they will be automatically synced with your Android device.

  2. Tap on the menu icon (usually represented by three horizontal lines) located at the top-left corner of the screen.
  3. Select “Settings” from the menu.
  4. In the Settings menu, tap on “Your Account Name” (e.g., “Outlook” or your email address).
  5. Under the account settings, tap on “Sync Contacts“.
  6. Toggle the switch to enable contact sync.
  7. Wait for the sync process to complete. This may take a few moments depending on the number of contacts you have.

Step 3: Verify the contact sync
After completing the sync process, it’s essential to ensure that your Outlook contacts are successfully synced with your Android device.

Here’s how to verify the contact sync:

  1. Open the Contacts app on your Android device.
  2. Navigate to the list of contacts and search for a contact that you have in your Outlook account.
  3. If you find the contact, congratulations! Your Outlook contacts are successfully synced with your Android device.

Tips and Troubleshooting:

  • If you don’t see any contacts after syncing, make sure you have added contacts to your Outlook account or check if auto-sync is enabled.
  • If you encounter any issues during the syncing process, try restarting your Android device or signing out and signing back into the Outlook app.
  • Make sure both your Outlook app and Android system are up-to-date with the latest versions.
