Google has begun introducing errors for Contact Sync using the depreciated Contacts API. The error will appear as "Error Code 400: Contacts API is being deprecated. Migrate to People API to retain programmatic access to Google Contacts. See https://developers.google.com/people/contacts-api-migration."

CompanionLink and People API

CompanionLink is ready with the new People API. Use the following guide to switch to the new People API to resolve this error:

Note: This only effects Contact Sync, so if you are syncing only Calendars or Tasks, you will be unaffected.
