Question about backing up contacts.


Android Question

I rooted my Nexus 5 last night, and in the process, I backed up my contacts from Google hangouts, and when I restored my contacts, they all (including a bunch of contacts from gmail, showed up in my People app. I have 32 contacts, and it is a major pain in the ass to copy them over manually, is there a way to copy them off of the People app and onto the hangouts (or hellosms) app? I can't figure out how.
