Issue is many numbers get copied to other names on their own and generate innumerable copies of same name and number. Please correct this issue, have found it in many contacts provided by different companies. Is providing contacts in simple way not possible, not from Google too? It shocks me, I believe Google but please resolve this issue first.
Was happy with the fresh new UI until I discovered this version took away the ability to customize contacts to display. Now WhatsApp numbers are hidden, which is not that bad after all, but I can't merge these extra info with the regular contact cards anymore. Now I get duplicate contacts in Google Phone app which has not been updated to act accordingly. Restored the factory version that was bundled with my Nokia 5 and all the functionalities they took away are back again. Not sure I'll update again in the near future.
Google well and truly messed up here. Whoever signed off the latest update should be fired. Can only block ppl altogether text and calls. Can't divert a call to voicemail and still get texts anymore. Totally blocked or not. What a joke!
[Update:4/10/17] : My mistake... I thought it didn't work, because i couldn't' see my contacts in the web browser. And the mistake was because the "sync" button on my device was Off. So i refresh my browser every few minutes and now I have all my contacts Sync. Thank you Google. One more thing to notice, is that This application can not be found in the "Bluestacks" android emulator, on my pc. all other apps can be found there. Fix this Google. Thank you
Not sure what has happened since the last update but I can't see any contacts whose name starts with any letter past 's'. It's like the alphabet now stops at s!!!
Not able to merge duplicate contacts... Don't have the option... It's very complicated... You have mentioned that one can merge contacts directly from contact window But there is no Such option available 👿👿👿👿
