    My phone does not have Google Contact Sync and have same problem. So I obtain the apk and use the version suitable for my phone. Here is the link Google Contacts Sync 4.0.4-488656 APK Download by Google Inc. - APKMirror
    Then after install, voila my google contact appear now and I can sync properly.
    This did not work. I did use Webroot to double check for viruses before I sent the email to myself so that I could install the download.

    The phone said that the file was corrupt and could not install it.

    My new Android 7.0 phone 360 N6 Pro was initially unable to sync because there was no "Sync Contacts" in the Google Account. The new phone has a setup category called Permissions which prevents certain apps from running on their own.

    I downloaded Google Contacts and installed it and then went into Permissions for System Files and allowed the permissions for these files:

    Contacts Storage
    Google Accounts
    Google Contacts Sync

    I rebooted the phone twice and voila! Google Contacts started syncing. All my contacts are on my new phone.

    You need the Google Contacts Sync" App (Not "Contacts Sync") installed on your phone. This is a system App so you may already have it on your phone, you are just looking in the wrong place. Make sure to look at ALL the Apps including System Apps.

    There are MANY versions of this file. The problem you are presently experiencing is probably because you are downloading a file which is not compatible with your version of Android. I suggest first going to Google Play on your phone and downloading Google Contacts and installing that file.

    In addition to this
    In the options , select to show system apps.
    Then check for 'Google Account Manager', Add permission to contact and and enable the service.\

    After doing this, go to settings>accounts run the sync.

    2) It won't sync or show any contacts
    3) Use the Restore options available
    4) Refresh and then go to Settings/Accounts/Google.....the COntacts sync option will appear and syn.

    Hi Ben,

    After I tap show system process, I don't still see "Google Contacts Sync", I can see only below 4 starting with Google, not sure why?
    • Google Account Manager
    • Google Cast
    • Google Play services
    • Google Play Store
    • Google Services Framework

    I am really appreciated your assistance.

    I am having the same problem and none of these suggestions has worked. The google contact had been there but unsynced since Feb 2018 and now it is gone completely. See attachedNo option to sync Google Contacts-screenshot_20180416-173843_settings.jpg Have allowed all access. When I go into Google contacts I see the contacts in the account. Help!

    I just spoke with Samsung. The latest update created some bugs in the system including this one. Samsung offered to roll my S8 back to the previous system or I can wait until the new update comes out before the end of April fixing this. Geez, how I wish they could have told us this and saved me a lot of time and effort!

    Oh, what a godsend. I cobbled together a couple things here and a big help to Charlie P up there (post #30 ), but my sticking point GOOGLE SERVICES FRAMEWORK. Do the following Settings>Apps>Show System>Google Services Framework>Permissions...and my Contacts was turned off. This is where you also check the other four things in Charlie's post. I turned GSF back on and viola! [three-finger-kiss]. What a pain in the butt that was for weeks. Thank you all! I hope this helps others.

    Got the fix. The reason was that the Google Contacts Sync was disabled somehow.
    go to the settings>apps .
    In the options , select to show system apps.
    Then check for 'Google Contacts Sync', and enable it.

    After doing this, go to settings>accounts and uncheck and check the 'auto-sync data' option.

    This will bring back the contacts sync option for the Google account.

    I was having the same issues. Not sure if your solution worked or if it was the fact that I freed up some of my space and updated my apps. Either way, now I can see all my contacts and all my accounts are synced up to date. I followed your solution and free space/updated apps and now it is working. Thank you.
