Want a quick way to keep your Google Contacts up-to-date with everyone new you email? Zapier can help. Set up this Zap, and whenever someone emails you, Zapier can copy their name and email address from the message—and then with a Formatter step, it can find their phone number if it's mentioned in the email text or signature. Then, Zapier can add all of that data to Google Contacts for the most complete new contact info every time.

How this Gmail-Google Contacts integration works

  1. Someone sends you an email in Gmail
  2. Zapier's Formatter finds their phone number in the email
  3. Zapier adds the contact to Google Contacts with their name, email, and phone number
