Merge duplicate contacts

If you have duplicate listings for the same person in Google Contacts, you can merge them.

You can't merge contacts that are saved in different Google Accounts.

    • To accept a single duplicate contact suggestion, tap Merge.
    • To accept all duplicate contact suggestions, at the top of the screen, tap Merge All.
  4. Optional: If you'd rather choose which contacts to merge:

    2. At the top right, tap More More and then Select.
    3. Choose the contacts you want to merge.
