12. Click Next.

13. Click Finish.

14. Launch a web browser and navigate to Gmail (gmail.com).

15. Log in to your Gmail account.

16. Click Contacts.

17. Click More.

18. Click Import.

19. Select the CSV file with your contacts.

20. Click Import.

No. I want to copy them FROM Android LG G3 TO Outlook 2016 contacts.
Expert:  Randy Boman replied 9 months ago.

okay, try this please>

  1. Log on to your Google Gmail account.

  2. Choose Gmail >Contacts.

  3. At the top of the contacts section, select More >Export.

  4. Under Which contacts do you want to export, choose a contact group or All Contacts.

  5. Under Which export format, select Outlook CSV (for importing into Outlook or another application), and then choose Export.

  6. When prompted to download the export file, choose Save As.

  7. Choose Browse and choose a location on your computer to temporarily save the file. The default file name is contacts.csv.

    If you want, you can open the contacts.csv file with Excel to check that all of your contacts were successfully exported. Unless you've been extraordinarily thorough at entering info for your contacts in Gmail, the exported CSV file will likely look something like the following, with info in some cells but not others:

    NOTE You can delete this file after your contacts are imported into Outlook.

Import your Google Gmail contacts into Outlook

  1. In Outlook on your desktop (Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016), choose File > Open & Export > Import/Export.

  2. Choose Import from another program or file, and then choose Next.

  3. Choose Comma Separated Values, and then choose Next.

  4. In the Import a File box, browse to find the file you saved in step 7 of the previous procedure, and then double-click to select it.

  5. Choose one of the following to specify how you want Outlook to handle duplicate contacts:

    • Replace duplicates with items imported If a contact is in Outlook and Gmail, Outlook discards the info it has for that contact and uses the info from Gmail. You should choose this option if the contact info in Gmail is more complete or more current than the contact info in Outlook.

    • Allow duplicates to be created If a contact is in Outlook and Gmail, Outlook creates duplicate contacts, one with the original Outlook info and one with the info imported from Gmail. You can combine info for those people later to eliminate duplicate contacts. This is the default option and the safest one because no info is discarded.

    • Do not import duplicate items If a contact is in Outlook and Gmail, Outlook keeps the info it has for that contact and discards the info from Gmail. You should choose this option if the contact info in Outlook is more complete or more current than the contact info in Gmail.

  6. Click Next.

  7. In the Select a destination folder box, scroll to the top if needed and select the Contacts folder > Next.

  8. Choose Finish.

    Outlook imports your contacts to Outlook.

Viewing your contacts in Outlook

  1. In Outlook on your desktop, select Address Book, choose the name of your mailbox, and choose Contacts.
