How to sync OnePlus 3 with Outlook Contacts

As an Android phone, you could manually import your Outlook Contacts to OnePlus 3. The downside of this technique is that you would have to do this every time you update your Outlook Contacts. And, if you add a contact on the OnePlus 3 it will not show up in Outlook. Manual processes tend to create duplicates and mix up the data.

With AkrutoSync you can perform a two-way wireless transfer between OnePlus 3 and Outlook. You can choose between syncing over the Internet or Wi-Fi; the Internet uses the phone’s data plan whereas Wi-Fi does not. However, both sync options keep your Outlook data private and out of the cloud. Some small businesses opt the Internet method to update Android Outlook Contacts when taking the phone outside of the Wi-Fi network.

Sync Outlook Calendars with your OnePlus 3

If you use Outlook on your PC, simply download and install the latest version of AkrutoSync; AkrutoSync will guide you through the configuration process. Syncing your calendar will be automatic, wireless, and private. Your information is with you everywhere you go without saving a single thing to the cloud. Your contacts and calendar remain on your computer and OnePlus 3 without downloading a different calendar app – a waste valuable space!
