Is it possible to sync Google Contacts with Outlook 365 contacts?

Yes, it is possible.

As @Luke the Geek pointed out in the comments, there are third-party utilities that will allow you to do this. This may be your best option if you have an older version of Windows.

But, there is a native method in Windows 10 (and likely other Windows platforms, such as their mobile ones) for accomplishing this: use the People app. As noted in the comments, this is not a true sync. It is best used for maintaining them both in one location.

Essentially, you sync both Outlook and Google Contacts with People:

  1. Search from your taskbar/start menu for People
  2. Click on the gear on the lower-left to open Settings
  3. Click Add Account, and follow the prompts to add both your Google and Outlook accounts, and set up their sync:

Add Account dialog

  1. Be aware that you might need to use Exchange, not Outlook, depending on how your account is actually set up

    The above solution put both contact lists in one place, but it does not update contact in one account to another.

I found this software Outlook4Gmail. And now I'm trying the Pro version for free, and it seems working well so far. https://outlook4gmail.scand.com/

Free version is limited. Label and Group are ignored.

Also tried Contact Sync, but could not sign into a Google account. http://www.pppindia.com/contacts-sync/

I had been using Thunderbird synced with Google Contacts, but the Addon I used for syncing stopped working, and I have to look for altenatives. It's remarkable why there aren't reliable builtin tools for syncing.
