Reviews From google play store

No options to change time format for calls. "15 hours ago"??? When is the last time someone told you, "I called you 15 hours ago"? Just put the actual time AND date (not "5 days ago" ). What's so hard about that? Apparently it's not since practically every other app does it! Google does this sort of thing on ALL of their crappy products.

I have had only 160 contacts in my phone but I see there are almost 500 contacts in the cloud backup and every single contacts are copied 3-4 times, also after restoring them in my phone I see it's labeled and the label can't be removed from phone. the app is trash, don't use it.

Lost numbers in this device and i accidentally found it to transfer to device. Also to many email accounts can't access email accounts for passwords or could not access them at all te email it was using i didn't even set it up. To many Google accounts to handle was told to could not be able to security or other information. Started 6 passwords at&t with Google 8 it went bad to worse from the 1st of smartphone and better with the new phones

Need to improve suggestions contact other devices like My previous redmi smartphone if I just dial last 4 digits of Mobile no. Then it aromatically shows the suggestion of same contact no. Bt in that app we couldn't get that suggestions. So plz start that suggestions feature .

When I click on a particular name so as to access the phone number, it says it doesn't exist until I click the second time. It's impossible sharing contacts as text messages. It converts to MMS and the person can't access it

Sir, When a call came, fast it shows on the screen, and then the screen turn off automatically but the ringtone automatically rang this time. After 5 sec the screen turn on

Ever since my phone updated, this app has been incredibly slow. It will hang indefinitely just from trying to add a new contact or add a contact to a group. In short, it has become completely unusable.

1 contact in my device is such that it is not getting deleted, when I delete it, it comes back after few minutes. This is a big issue for me.

Great app for keeping track of contacts. I do wish Google would add the ability to sort by "file as", rather than just first or last name (like on Contacts when using the website). I took the time to set "Mom" and "Dad", but it only shows them by first/last name on here - as opposed to Mom and Dad on the main Contacts page online.

This is ridiculous. I'm assuming there was a recent "update". Woke up with only phone numbers listed in messages and call history. But the contact already exists in my address book. When I attempt to restore my contacts, I am falsely told I have no backup. However, when I log into my Google account, all of my contacts are listed there. Please correct this issue. I have not had this issue before.

Ever since the update it no longer works with messages. I get texts from phone numbers not friends. When I copy the number to save to contacts, it's already there! Yet in messages, I get offered the chance to report as spam and block. Block numbers that are in my contacts??? Please fix this. Now I don't know who is calling or texting me. This update sucks

Super buggy. Even though all the contacts are there, it says "Getting contacts, this may take a while" at the top of the screen, but it never goes away, even when you scroll. When I try to refresh by pulling down, the loopy thing kicks in and keeps on looping, joining the "Getting contacts" disclaimer in perpetuity. I like this app in principle and it looks otherwise pretty spiffy, but it's unusable for now.

For the most part, this app works well. What is infuriating though, is that contacts that are somewhat similar yet distinctly separate (eg- 2 people at same company, or totally different companies but similar names will automatically be merged without notice, and without the option to opt out, or more importantly never being asked to opt in! I have "lost" untold numbers of contacts that were absorbed into another contact, only to be found by search or accident.

When i just type g in the search bar of the phone app, the app crashes. Another issue: when the phone starts ringing (receive a call), i turn the screen off but the screen doesn't stay turned off. It turns on again. One more issue, when i save a new contact, the app makes (duplicates) 3-4 more of the same contact . And one more issue i realized recently, when somebody else calls me while i am talking on the phone (LTE), the first active call terminates and the phone goes on ringing

Typing in search brings the list in from of the keyboard so I almost ALWAYS select someone I shouldn't when searching. It's been a bug for a long time.

History of dialled numbers Please NOKIA do the needful. in every brand when we dial any number it shows history of that dialled number but we dont have facility in nokia fones..please update this issue. sometimes we dont want to add a number in our contact but we have to redial that again so if history shows by simple typing 1st 3 disgits of that number it could be easier for user. best of luck.

I have it on my Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 and I have to say that miu Dialer andi Contacts are much better then Google's! I like Google's apps, but this two apps should be like Xiaomi's miui contact and dialer!

This is a contact app it does not need, and does not make any sense whatsoever, to have access to body sensors so Google Play services can function correctly. FIX THIS ASAP.

Can't save contacts on sim.. there is no such a option.. please add this option to save on sim memory.. it's very useful to us..

Why we have to leave space on the left? Colorful round alphabet at the beginning of name is so irritating. We don't need that. One round is enough at the starting. Secondly contacts do not give a glance of any other details except name. Suppose i have two john in my contacts how to know who is whom without going inside contact details. Atleast give us a company details along with contact name.

As much as I enjoy Google products this one doesn't seem to work very well.. Often when I type in somebody's name into the contacts search bar the name does not show up.... When I looked up the problem... Google says it can be a backup issue. turning on and off your account contact backups several times should fix the problem.... It has not...

If i create a new contact this app automatically creating a empty contact also in the sane name. There is no option to find and merge the duplicate contacts. It is a google app so naturally we are expecting updated new features but basic feature is also not there. It is a big disappointment... Pls consider this in your next update...

Please Add manual Level for contacts, like Favorite, Recent in front screen to swipe between these.. Instead of Favorite, Recents, Contacts, add Any One Level which is created for Group Contacts for more easily accessible... Then i will give 5 star.. And please add Level while Adding New contacts Just after Name details.. I hope developers got my point.. It not please response

Overall it is ok but there is some issues with contact repetition. Some of my contacts are repeated 10 time or even more. But when I look it over laptop it shows only one contact. There is no suggestions regarding mergin duplicate contacts also. Several times the tried to send feedback to the developers but they don't even reply to me.

Unable to sync my contact with Google. Except contact other Google products are syncing properly. Contact app not responding with my gmail account and not responding with refresh ( pulling down) . I am unable to access my contact. Plz help my on it. May be it is a bug problem...

It's the best contacts app, yet the problem is when we try to call other devices that don't have the similar app as this one we have. We become restricted to only making phone calls from it and the video call option is not provided. My wish is for you to activate accessibility to do video throughout all phone types and no restrictions. Thanks you (Ng'yabonga)

My default contacts app since its inception. Thank you for dark theme! App works fairly well, once you get used to its settings and navigation. IMO that is the only thing holding the app back. Some of the settings within individual contacts are a pain to use or even find. Again, that becomes less of an issue after using it for awhile. It does integrate with other services fairly well, such as email and messaging.

Would be a great app but the information about the call history is very limited eg. if a number called me multiple times it doesn't show the time stamp for each call. Can't track the length of the calls. Sometimes those things are really helpful to recognise the caller from an unsaved number from the history.

Can't install this app. Tons of times i have tried it's always telling me this app cannot work without updating Google play services which turned out to be the most elusive stuff on the material world. Has anybody been able to locate this play services on Google play stores or as a matter of fact anywhere? It's takes away your data drain your battery and waste your time,ultimately leaves you frustrated! And Google is that entity that wants to solve all of humanity problem? Start with gplservices

Hello, maybe you can add a new feature wherein the email contact lists and phone contact lists can be separated. Because it is hard to look at the contact lists if you have duplicate, triplicate or more on the list. The current option cannot remove all the duplicates. Or maybe you can add something that will merge the contacts with the same information or number. Thanks

This app works in the background of most android phones seamlessly. It wasn't until I somehow erased all my contacts that I really became aware of the value of this app. I was able to simply head over to my google account and restore a backup of my contacts and in a matter of seconds the damage I had done was gone. Another great feature is the ability to mark certain callers as spam and block their calls. I love this app, and will use it for all my devices.

Great app EXCEPT they removed the option of "Merge Duplicate Contacts"... So now I have 1 contact that have 6 entries. And then when I decide to delete 1 entry (because it has 5 duplicates), it deleted 3 of the contacts. I've been a loyal Google app customer, but I'm tempted to switch to a different app to manage my contacts. I'm so frustrated, I'm half tempted to get an iPhone.

Dear developer, please add very important option "Auto Call Recorder" we need this option every smart phone users. Thanks

I like this app better than the stock Android app. I just wish I could figure out how to make it my default contacts app. Maybe it's because I'm running Android v7.0 on a Galaxy S6 but it doesn't show up as an option to be the default. Other than that I like that there's dark mode and has a better look.

Doesn't work on Android phones. Sync stopped working with Gmail so I deleted and then re-added my account which removed "contacts" as an item. Thought I'd try using the Google Contacts app to find my "contacts." Nope, this app just spins endlessly and won't find a single contact. Junk.

New updates have made contacts harder to find. I was able to type in a name and it was no problem. You have to make sure the name is in the correct position or many times it won't be shown. I have 5,500 contacts so name, company, title or something else must be connected to actually get the number too many times!

Works half decently and only half the time the biggest issue faced by me for years with this app is - the double display/duplication of same contacts e.g., I have a only 1 contact name Sam for whom when I search there are three Sam's displayed with the same contact details in each plz get an update to fix this...! Plz fix this contact sync issue immediately !

It is very difficult to operate your contacts when i open the app if there is one name the same name is reapited many many times. Hence i am confused as to on which name i have to touch so please remove all the duplicate or more than duplicate names from the list of contracts. Thank you.

So far Google Contacts has been a Great App for me!! It Helps me to Organize & Keep things in Order..Thank you!!

The main problem about this app is that you can never view your save contact from your simcard. You are force to import your contacts from simcard to your email. You cannor save contacts also to your device memory. There are too many things that this app needs to improve. Users have no choice but to use gmail just to view contacts

I'm finding it difficult to edit contacts on my newer device Motorola ... "Contact editor failed" and similar messages. This started occurring since they updated the app in the past year. I'm experiencing extensive delays opening Large contact files as well. Does anyone know a way to roll back to the previous versions? Due to the Monopoly of Android and Google it's difficult to introduce an alternate editor.

How the f😑 After the multiple accounts changes somehow all the contacts I had stored on my primary personal google account were removed from that one and transferred to my new business account. I am NOT ok with this. At least moving them back was somewhat easy, but that never should have happened in the first place. I know I didn't do it, I don't even access my contacts often except using the phone to call or messaging apps to text. And NOONE else has access to my accounts.

"No pictures are available on the device" when trying to add a photo to a contact, even though I obviously have photos on my phone. I tried moving my images into various different folders in the storage to no avail. I've had this problem since update to Android 10 on my garbage Google Pixel. Why is there a separate app for contacts anyways? It used to be baked into the phone app.

Whoever said you should keep up with every update is a fool. The latest update has royaly sunk me. I use my phone for work to keep numbers of people I need to contact, the app seems to have lost numbers and some of my "contacts doesn't exist" but I can't erase the name from my phone. Along with linking them to Viber/WhatsApp and any other messaging service I have 300 contacts with only 60 people I actually know! Thanks for the extra work!

Several contacts of same person are formed due to the different apps. From Duo to whatsapp and Telegram! It's so inconvenient to have so many duplicate contacts of same name. Deleting the duplicate contacts doesn't help as they form again. It would be much better if the saved contact has the links of all the apps under one contact rather than having several new duplicates.

Good afternoon sir Not displayed the history date,some contact will save the sim Card but import the number will save the device or Google contact not view sim card pls add sim card option i am save to sim card the same number pls add quickly. thank you sir🙂

Hi, Although there is almost nothing which we think we need before the Google team knows. But I'm curious about one feature if its available or a work in progress. We have few contacts where they have similar names and also surnames. In that case, is it possible to add one more field to be visible, when the contacts call, on the screen. If possible, can that choice of secondary field be left to the user? Tha in advance!

I love the app, I really do. Especially the syncing across devices... 5* Google! BUT, when I open the contact app and scroll through my contact list everything looks good, no duplicates and all, and Then I go to the search bar and start typing a letter... That's when it gets interesting. Suddenly there's a bunch of same contact ID that'll show like 4-7times, with some opening literally blank contact details (no phone number, email or any social*app linkage(like Duo, Skype etc)). Seriously, wth??

I installed it then 5 minutes later it didn't work.... Now its not working... Not loading my contacts

"File as" field is not working as expected. It should show the value in the contact book but it is still showing up the first name. Also, it doesnot search using the value in file as field. What is the use of it then? when i share a contact, it does share my details like address and birthdates, but when the recipient tries to save the contact on their phones, they are unable to import these details automatically in their appropriate fields.

This is a default app for Android One program, it is okay to use compared to most advanced dialer of most oem but the worst thing is if it is minimised while in a call, if a call comes as waiting, it only gives a beep tone, but never pops up any where on screen until the dialer is touched for back to call option. Hope if it can be fixed/modified, will be a great feature. Update: call grouping looks good

Recent update is worst, 1.from website to app no synchronisation. 2. Duplicate contact's issues not resolved. 3. From second space google account contacts are automatically copying to primary account without numbers and displaying. It's really irritating to use this app. Immediately rectify the issues / bug's.

Hey Google, can you make an option for this app to archive all contacts that have a certain label? I want to keep certain phone numbers in case I need them but don't want them displayed with the rest of my contacts. Another thing that would be nice would be an alphabet slider on the right side. Those were the only things I missed from the app, otherwise it's a fantastic app; love the dark theme, the customization and relationship options, the colored lettering and the overall simplicity of it.

Since last update on of Google App June 7, Google Contacts are not updating to and from server automaticly. Number of Contacts is Missing. Syncing of LinkedIn Contacts does not Work. Sync count and data did not matches on each of devices and server. Please fix this app which gives sync fail after just 1 min of trying. Tons of new contacts were entered on each of my different devices, then why at the end if new contact is entered it's not automatically get backed up on the server & devices?

To add a tag to a new number, you have to click through 2 links and reveal 2 piles of additional fields and scroll to the bottom! The fact you cannot set default fields for easily adding contacts is genuinely absurd, because "Customize view" is the most easily accessible and primary functionality of Contacts; it displays only contacts of a certain tag! This oversight is nothing short of complete and total neglegence.

kindly, improve contacts search feature it should search whatever we type alteranely in any mode i.e. for 'Shri' - search key should be as ' Sh or SH or sh...' # A name should be search by any type of words though there is a space between letters of name. # In current contacts app it is not possible. It is very hard to search specific contact name or number. # Improve this

Overall it's good. But I have an annoying experience where typing in a search term brings up unrelated contacts that don't have the search term in the name. For example typing "Mum" brings up other contacts without "Mum" in the name.

the app function is too poor. it uses alot of time to surf and nothing is obtained at the end.

How does google average 4.4/5 ? Scroll thru them. Worst app Google seems to put effort into making apps worse with each update. Does not display # of contacts in each group . If you want to copy and past a contacts number it's several pointless menus to do this . Worst of all it automatically merges contacts who that have nothing to do with each other into one name , causing complete havoc. Unsuspecting users may accidentally text or call the wrong person and ultimately ruin lives . Thanks Google

Missing feature: archive (but not delete) contacts to never accidentally interact with them again. This is a missing feature Android-wise, share action suggestions show people I haven't talked to in ages and don't want to share anything with.

Google app is very good but a little problem in name searching. When an alphabet is written, it starts for search from the last alphabet of the name. It starts searching from the last side of the name. While searching from the beginning alphabet of the name. Please improve it in your next update. Thanks

Amazingly, search feature works only occasionally and usually cannot locate entries with only business names (i.e., with no first name and last name). Google Web site is much more robust, which I find myself using more than this app. Too bad this awful app is so prominent on Android.

A few suggestions: advanced search to search by the content you put in notes or other fields like phone number etc, filter and sort by whatever column header you want - instead of names go by date created or modified or frequently contacted, label, notes, company etc. Could reference corresponding gmail and have optional calendar integration to link connections to events/dates. Need more customization options.

Great but facing a big where when i open a contact it only shows their names and phone numbers. Initially before the latest update the contact app would show me the contact name and which social circles they are active in ie whatsapp (vodeo call, call, message) telegram, skype etc

App is fine sometimes it's hard to find options yo're looking for. Suggestion: Add the ability to assign a color to each contact and this will allow you to change the colors in the messages app.

worse app ever , u delete contacts , then later on they reappear again , can someone tell Google contacts or whatever i deleted because i don want those contacts hello !!!! Very annoying , it was better when u jus had contacts on device or simcard ....... Developer do something

I request you to add feature of full screen image preview when we receive a call from caller. And can you show me the way how can I merge the same contact of different account into a single contact? Currently, if I save any new contact then few new contacts of same number are automatically created by other apps. So better if we can show this contact with single entry in the app.

Stupid ,if someone uses what's app & duo this app shows 3 entries for that person in the phone book which is pointless or at least give us option to disable what's app and duo entries,because of this phone book become to cluttered, you can't navigate it swiftly,it becomes painful experience to find out desired contact and actually call them, please design simple app with simple old school ui, and stop harassing people in the name of modern features,i can't imagine how elderly people deal with it

This functioned well for years. It did not load any comact phone numbers or anything entered in fields other than emails. I tried updating from older backups. Did not help. Even on chrome contact, gmail contact, old phone....all sync same and 10+ years of data erased.

Its gone stale. • Need ability to share contacts with my wife. Either all of them or specific labels like Google Photos can with albums. • Need to add ability to allow users to designate certain fields that will automatically update in the contacts app of people in my contacts or public.

I have used an loved this. But now it has doubles of almost every contact when I activated my new phone an imported everything over from old Google backups. Plus, the phone me feature where you can type in a company name or a business an call them from the call pad is worrisome

This app hasn't evolved much in the last 10 years, in fact it has lost social media integration. There is so much Google can do better right out of contacts - connections to order networks, reminders, access to unified inbox... All between phone, contacts and messaging apps.

- Finding contact with Name is confusing if we have two contact saved in same name. - You can help in next update - Contact - Setting - Name Format must be with option Name with Company... - Also in the dialer list Contact with Company and time would be helpful - Also identity caller from the photo which popup very small on screen. Is it possible to get the picture on full screen if someone call. That would be awesome to identify who is calling and more be like more connected

Searching one's contact details are not possible. If we type for contact, it will show but when we click on searched contact the details are not showing. Either it asks for send msg or call this number. Thats it. Pls develop in a way that if we type a contact name, it should show the contact details first.

Add an instant option in unknown number like "Add in contacts"

Today's update is laced with problems that no longer allow this app to sync up with my phone, sim card, Google account, etc. Please fix this. You shouldn't roll out updates without testing them first. Not sure how to undo your current flawed update.

One issue hasn't been addressed it seems. Having multiple Google accounts here is a big itch. Want to see the contacts reflecting on both accounts without breaking a sweat.

. Some group lists let me choose contacts to message but others don't I can't work that out. Get rather annoyed that I have to put in an email account to save contact in as when sending from a different account, the contact can't be accessed.

Google try to make this app as a full functional phone caller, now is very limited. Can't see caller details as recent, dialled etc like any other stock built-in apps phones. Well understand it's purpose but without being as a phone app its totally useless for any users. Thanks

Nice syncing. Just add a feature so that the name of our contacts can be shown by our preferences such as what we have typed in 'title' field rather than in their name.

There used to be a "my contact" just at the top. It is gone and took away 3 points. Hence only two remain as evaluation of this app. Suddenly, tapping a contact starts dialing immediately. This is not what is expected as a reasonable behaviour. Sad.

I already had inbuilt contacts application, just bcoz I didn't give permission to google to access all kind of possible information, it didn't give me access to dial to any number in my contact list, once I installed this app and gave permission then only google allowed me to dial in my own amazing

When trying to access my contacts in one account only, it gives me all account contacts. This makes it difficult to send messages to everyone in that one account. It also will not allow me to create groups to keep them seperate.

Really boring design. No separation of favorites or breaks between alphabet or anything. It's just a generic list of names. Very under whelming for a Google product. Not even sure why they released this product with so little effort in the user experience.

In an earlier version of Contacts you could click on the name of a person listed in the relationship field, and if that person were in your Contacts there would be a link which would take you to that person's contact information. The ability of the program to perform that action should be reenabled. Many times I've had to search for a person's contact information but couldn't remember their name and had to search for them through a close associate of that person.

The font is displeasing to the eye and the entire look harkens back to the dark ages. The Samsung "Contacts app" is an example of a more Icon/Image based Contacts App that is more convenient to use.

I have been complaining on different forums but all in vain. Really disappointed by your service. Everytime i open contacts phone gets hanged. Have to restart it every single time. Please if you are seeing this make it right.

Have you really got so many bugs ? Updates every couple of days same remarks.

Contacts App stopped syncing as of 11/12 with my Google account contacts. I've cleared the cache, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, multiple restarts, nothing is working. It still pulls in my Outlook email contacts.

It's a nice app to maintain contact but there is a problem!! After factory reset, many contact number disappears although those were saved in gmail.Not only this is my problem but also many people are facing this!!!You should improve it.

Needs to be able to search for partial names. For example. Searching for "ron" should return "Aaron", "Sharon", and "Ronald". CURRENTLY, only the last search result will be presented.

A saved number deletion, frequently hit the "The Contact Doesn't Exist" even though it is existed just the app cannot load the contact fast enough. Why don't you save the synced contact offline like any other contact app that works even better than this app.

Please add back the option to only have contacts with numbers on the Pixel 4xl. I have all contacts with just emails displaying and I no longer have the option to just have phone numbers. Anyone else on the Pixel 4 experiencing this??

Just saying bug fixes is inappropriate. This leads to people finding more unwanted problems. Put some effort in explaining what actually changed. Thanks.

Everything about this messenger is perfect. I switched from Samsung's default messenger to this one because of it's anti spam features. The only bad thing is that you cannot select and delete multiple messages in a conversation

Horrible duplication issue. Some contacts show up four times for no reason, if you delete just one then they all eventually disappear and there's no way you can get that contact back.

I like a lot of the changes but could it be added in the suggestions area to check the notes of the contacts? Sometimes contact information is in there when it should not be.

Duplication of contacts remains an issue. We see 3 or 4 contacts for a name when I have just 1 contact by that name. Surprised that this is reported by so many users and is still not fixed.

Contacts with same Names are merged automatically (can't be disabled), as if everyone in the world has a unique name, unique components like number and emails are ignored..!
