What to do if your Google account is not syncing on the phone

Recommended Posts

Some people love Android but sometimes it happens that when you try to add a new account on a phone, you get a syncing error.

Specifically, when you buy a new phone and you go for setting up or add a secondary account, you are offered the possibility to sync your Google contacts with the contact app.

If your google account is not syncing on phone, then do check the settings of your phone. So the steps that will most likely fix this issue once and for all are listed below:

Make sure Android Sync is activated on your phone: The first step is to make sure that your android sync is activated. In order to do so, you have to go to the settings data usage and then to the menu to check if Auto-sync data is checked. Even if it is checked, you have to then try to turn it off and on a few times.

Make sure Google Contacts sync is turned on: If you want to check this, you have to go to the settings, then accounts, Google and then select the account that you are using. Turn it off and on again a few times.

Make sure that Background Data is enabled: There are some apps and features that won’t work until they are connected to Wi-Fi. So, you have to go to the settings, data usage, menu and check if the “Restricted background data” is selected or not.

Use Google account recovery: You can also use the Google account recovery page to sync your Google account to your phone.  You can follow the link https //g.co/recover to proceed.

Remove your Google Account and set everything up once again: Removing your Google account and then setting everything up once again is another method. For this, you have to go to the settings, accounts, Google and then select the account that you are facing issues with. You have to choose the remove account option and then go through the setup process one more time.
