- MERGE & REMOVE DUPLICATE CONTACTS!
- It’s not the worst thing that can happen to your smartphone, but if you have a ton of duplicate contacts it can be really inconvenient when you try to communicate with your friends and family, probably sending a message or trying to reach an old number. Let alone trying to dial in with the help of Google’s voice assistant. The good news is that these can be easily managed and organized.
From your phone
Android’s stock phone app should be the first thing to try. Go to your Contacts — we tried this on LG and Samsung phones, but depending on your phone’s brand it can be a little different — on the app, tap the Menu button > Manage Contacts > then select Merge. A screen with all repeated contacts will show up, so you can confirm which you want to merge one by one.
