I'm trying to get the Contacts app on MacOS Big Sur to display my Google contacts correctly. I have the account configured and the contacts themselves show up, but the Google contact tags (what Google calls "labels" and Apple calls "groups") aren't showing up.

Further, if I add a new contact group in the Contacts app under "Google" and use it to group several contacts, they seem to be stored locally (they are there after I reboot) but don't get pushed up to Google.

Any suggestions how to debug this further?

  • Perhaps contact Google?

There's no straightforward way to do this yourself. Your options are to either give up on it or check out third-party tools.
