I’m trying to add a new contact on an iPhone to a google account. I can go to contacts.google.com in safari and add it there, but is there a way to do that with the contacts app? I have google contacts synced in mail accounts settings. I’m not sure where my contacts are actually being saved, is it iCloud?

  • I’m okay with syncing google contacts to my iPhone, what I’m not sure how sync from the iPhone to google. I guess I’m looking for bidirectional sync, but I’m not sure what the right terms are.

If you have already enabled the toggle for your Google account to sync contacts, you only need to set your Default Account in your iOS Contacts settings to be your Google Account. Then, when adding contacts they will automatically be uploaded to your Google Account.
