Sending to contacts from Gmail/Google Contacts or Outlook/Office365/Microsoft365

Q: Can I compose to contacts in my Gmail/Outlook contacts?

A: The app does not directly support account contacts from email systems such as Gmail/Google Contacts or Outlook/Office365/Microsoft365.

However it does support Phone Contacts. This uses your Contacts (addressbook) on your phone. In many cases you can set these accounts up to be included on your phone as a contacts source.

For example on iPhone, under system settings you can add Gmail as an account and select to include it in your Contacts.

In Speaking Email set up Phone Contacts under Preferences > Reply, Compose, etc.
