If you operate primarily in Gmail, you know how important it is that any third-party platform you use can play nicely with this inbox. Plenty of us use Gmail as our primarily inbox, and with good reason: it's simple, it's easy to use, and most people have it. So now you want to start connecting to your Gmail contacts through video, but you want to move your Gmail contacts over to BombBomb. What to do?
With the Gmail integration, you can easily move your Gmail contacts into your BombBomb account! We enhanced our Gmail integration to sync over more of your Google contacts into BombBomb. In just a few clicks, you can connect the Gmail integration and sync "Groups" (in the old contacts view) or "Label" in the new contacts view. And if you use the Friends, Co-Workers, Family, and Starred labels, the new sync will also grab contacts that are sorted within your phone's Google contacts. Not wanting to constantly sync your lists over with updated contacts? No problem - when you send an email to a contact list, it will automatically re-sync and update itself.
To learn how to connect the Gmail integration and sync contacts, check out the step by step instruction below:
To begin, log into your BombBomb account. Hover over your name in the upper right corner and click the "Integrations" option.
Find the Gmail integration on this page and select it.
Once on the Gmail integration page, click the "Connect" button on the right side of the page.
You will be prompted to select your Gmail account that you'd like to integrate. Select the Gmail account you'd like to connect to BombBomb.
You will be shown the permissions that you must grant to BombBomb so we can access relevant Gmail information to integrate. Click the "Allow" button.
Once you click "Allow," if successful, you will see a banner at the top of your screen letting you know the integration was successful. To pull over your Gmail contact lists, head to the Contacts tab. On this page, you will see a "Sync from Gmail" button. Click this to bring over your contact lists.
Your Gmail lists will populate and you will be able to select which Gmail lists you'd like to integrate into BombBomb. Select your desired contact lists and click the "Save My Selections" button.
The list will then integrate into your BombBomb contacts!
