While you work in a group, you sometimes face different problems while sending emails to a large number of people. In such a case, many individuals tend to put email addresses manually to send their messages.

Now, the trick to send emails both effectively and efficiently is by importing CSV files. CSV file allows you to sync your contacts automatically. Using CSV, you can sync as many as contact you want to sync on Gmail. With the help of google contacts, you can import all the all your important contacts in one place. With this, it can be more efficient to send emails/notices for employees or friends all together at once. Here, you can also divide the group by creating a label to separate client, personal, and employee contacts. Another advantage of this service is that after you change your android device, you can easily import contacts by sign in your Gmail account on a new android device. Hence, with all these advantages being illustrated, in this blog, I will be providing a detailed procedure to import CSV files on Gmail Contacts.

What are the pre requisitions before you go through this blog?

If you have not created your CSV file yet, you can go through my previous blog where I have illustrated a proper stepwise procedure for creating a CSV file.
