Step 1: If your contacts are currently stored in iClouds, you'll need to transfer them to Gmail so they can be accessed on your Android device. Go to 'Mail, Contacts, Calendars', then go to Accounts. Open iCloud and make sure to toggle for 'Contacts' is on. If it isn't , turn it on and Merge your device's contacts with iCloud.

Step 2: Open any web browser on your PC and go to www.icloud.com. Log in with your Apple ID and click Select All. Click the cog again( if the window is no longer open) and select Export vCard.

Step 3: Open Gmail in your browser, then click the Gmail drop-down menu top left( under the google logo). Select Contacts, click More and select Import. Browse for the vCard file you saved and click Import. When it's done, click More again and select 'Find and merge duplicates' to remove any repeated contacts.

1. Visit to iCloud.com and log in with the Apple ID of yours.
2. After when you are logged in, choose the Contacts option to show up your contacts.
3. Now you need to export the contacts by selecting the first contact in your list. The nhold down the shift key and then select the last contact on your list. With this all the contacts on your list will be selected. Now click the gear in the left-hand corner and then select Export vCard option.
4. When the save box option opens to you, save your file to somewhere on your PC which you can remember. I recommend the Desktop will be the best.
5. Now just head over to the Google contacts and login.

7. Now a dialog box will appear to you which will be describing you what is about to happen.
8. You just need to select the file by clicking the Choose option which will be available to you in the box which appears to you.
9. Now just select the backup file you saved earlier and then choose to open it.
10. Finally, click to the import button to begin the import of your contacts.
