Once you’ve connected your contacts service with IFTTT, you can automatically add (or update) their profile, or use their details to automate another activity.

Adding Google Contacts to IFTTT can be a great way to streamline your workflow and stay organized. IFTTT stands for If This Then That and is a service that allows you to create automated tasks based on triggers. With Google Contacts integrated in IFTTT, you can set up automated tasks that will help you keep your contacts up to date and organized. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to add Google Contacts to IFTTT and the benefits of doing so.

Step 1: Sign Up for an IFTTT Account

The first step is to create an IFTTT account. Visit the IFTTT website and click on the Sign Up button. You’ll be prompted to enter some basic information and then you’ll be able to create your account.

Step 2: Connect Google Contacts

Once you’ve created your account, you’ll need to connect your Google Contacts. To do this, click on the My Services tab in the top menu and then click on the + Connect button. This will take you to the Connect a Service page, where you can search for and select Google Contacts.

Step 3: Create an Applet

Once you’ve connected your Google Contacts, you’ll be able to create IFTTT applets. An applet is a task that is triggered by a certain event. For example, you can create an applet that will add a new contact to your Google Contacts every time someone follows you on Twitter. To create an applet, click on the Create tab in the top menu and then select Applet.

Step 4: Set Up Your Applet

Once you’ve selected Applet, you’ll need to set up the trigger and action for your applet. For example, if you want to add a new contact to your Google Contacts every time someone follows you on Twitter, you’ll need to select Twitter as the trigger and Google Contacts as the action. You can then customize the details of your applet, such as what information should be added to the contact.

Step 5: Enable Your Applet

Once you’ve set up your applet, you’ll need to enable it. To do this, click on the Enable button in the top right corner of the applet. This will ensure that your applet is active and will run whenever the trigger is activated.
