    You need to add the account manually.

    First, remove the existing contacts account (if it's still there), then go to your Google account and ensure 2FA is disabled and also make sure the so called "allow less secure apps" is enabled.

    If you wish to leave 2FA enabled, you can also create an app password and use the created password for step # 6.

    Now follow these instructions carefully:

    1. Go to Accounts.

    2. Select Add Account.

    3. Select Advanced at the bottom of the screen.

    4. Tap CardDav.

    5. Enter whatever you like for a description, and your Gmail e-mail address for username and e-mail address.

    6.Enter your Gmail password for the password.

    7. For the Server Address, enter the following:

    https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav

    You might also need to sign out of Google from the browser to make this work.

    The suspicion is Google depreciated an URL, but in any case this method is confirmed to work for contacts.

    Are you sure you entered all the information correctly?

    Description - whatever you want.
    Username -your Gmail address.
    Email address - your Gmail address.
    Password - your Gmail password.
    Server address - https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav

    Let us know if you are still having trouble.

    The actual server address is

    ''https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v1/principals/userEmail/lists/default/''

    Without the ''

    Using 2 step authentication and app password for the carddav I was able to get the contacts synced without jeopardizing security
