    When I try to sign in my gmail account into my BlackBerry Z10 it can't add my contacts which is added to that gmail. On the contrary it shows a message which is "At this time your contacts account can't be added. Please try again later." I'm just tired of seeing this. Is there any solution for this?

    First, remove the existing contacts account, then go to your Google account and ensure 2FA is disabled and also make sure the so called "allow less secure apps" is enabled.

    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. Enter your Gmail password for the password.

    6. 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 deprecated a URL, but in any case this method is confirmed to work for contacts.

    If this concerns anyone, I do hope they won't change their settings.
    However, if they want to add their contacts account to BB10 device then this is the procedure to follow.

    2 factor authentication in 2019 is a must anymore IMO. I know most many services dont use it but if they do its critical IMO to enable it. The world is a scary place these days.

    Especially for my Google Account.

    It contains all of my passwords, email, and a great deal of other information.

    Thank you very much for the Server Address you provided, I can finally sync my contacts.
    And I found a way to avoid disabling 2FA. You just need to open the following URL to generate an App passwords for your account, then use the generated password to log in:
    https://myaccount.google.com/apppasswords

    Or you can find this settings in the Security settings of your Google account.

    Nice find obhasqr! You can often get around 2FA issues by generating app passwords, but I wasn't aware it would work with the new Google contact sync process. Well done!
