My Calendar will sync with google, but Gnome Contacts doesn't?

Why won't Gnome contact sync with Google Contacts? My Calendar syncs with Google. Doesn't seem to be anyway to connect the Contact to an Google account.

A friutless websearch for an answer to this failed me. But you are not alone finding this issue. There is a bug report for gnome contacts re Google contacts here: Bug #1024606 “gnome-contacts stopped showing contacts from Googl...” : Bugs : gnome-contacts package : Ubuntu

Have you considered adding Google Contacts to Evolution or Thunderbird instead?

Looking at how far back the dates on the bug report go, it appears that this is something that isn't going to get fixed....Just saying.
