Contact groups in Contact app

I cant find the “Contact groups” in my Fairphone Open Contact app. On my old phone with LineageOS, I think that was a tab in the contact app, on my new Phone, it isn’t there (see screenshot).

Where do I have to look for it?

In a different app. Unfortunately the standard contacts app of Android 6 doesn’t have it.


Oh! That’s a pity. Is there any resource for recommendations of contact apps (with groups) that do not give away all the information I give them?

I don’t know of any, but you can change to Lineage OS to have the groups back.

I’d prefer not to change the OS just to get another app. :smiley: It can’t be then.

Can you recommend one?
I’d find contact groups quite useful.

I’m using Lineage OS and am quite happy with the pre-installed app there.

Alright, thanks anyway

I am not a heavy “contacts” user, but you should give Contacts from fdroid a try (in the fdroid app it’s listed as “Simple Contacts”).
It’s a simple and easy contacts manager - for storing contacts local only - and groups are featured as well.


Oh wow cool, that’s new! Before the last update Simple Contacts didn’t have groups yet.

Great, great, great!! :slight_smile: This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you! :+1:
