Import contacts from Gmail or Hotmail

Hi, in https://support.skype.com/es/faq/FA3281/Anadir-contactos-Windows it says that I can import contacts from Gmail or Hotmail selecting the "Import Contacts" option.

 

I did that but I only can import from a strange mail accounts (rediff, mail.ru, Yandex...). I can't see Gmail or Hotmail.

 

I am only intersted in Gmail and Hotmail, but there isn't an option to do that. Why?

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately, as many other Skype support articles, this one is outdated. The currently available import options are as shown in this English FAQ article:

Re: Import contacts from Gmail or Hotmail

I need this option, but it seems it's unavailable :sad:

 

I will have to check my contacts one by one.

 

Thanks for your answer.

I also want to import contacts from hotmail or a csv file.  It seems impossible.  Please provide instructions if they exist.   Thanks.

Re: Import contacts from Gmail or Hotmail

Worthless advice. I found that access myself. Gmail is NOT listed for import among the email utilities.

Quite amazing, isn't it? All sort of crappy email utilities are listed but not gmail. Not difficult to figure out, why not...

Hi

 

You can easily import all your contacts to outlook(what I did) or one of the emails which skype supports. Then you can import them in a jiffy !

Only problem is Vista & Windows 7 don't come with outlook express & you can only get outlook with the premium version of Microsoft office & not the home edition.
