Years back, there was a trick which allowed to export Google Contacts in the much cleaner way, i.e. in case you only wanted some particular fields, using the print option of Google Contacts. It seems Gmail team updated something and it no more works. So the questions hit back, How do I export contacts from contact book where it contains only Name, Email, Phone number or only fields which one requires. Right now, when you try to export, it has tons of fields which are either empty or just not needed. So in this post, I will share the trick to export only Name, Email and Phone number from Google Contacts. In the end, I will use any of the standard CSV editors to get the job done.
