How to Merge Contacts on Android

Having duplicate contacts on your Android phone can make your contacts list messy and disorganized. When you have the same contact saved multiple times, it can be hard to keep track of their latest information. Luckily, Android makes it easy to merge duplicate contacts into one single entry. This keeps your contacts list streamlined with one centralized entry for each contact person. In this guide, we'll walk through the steps to easily merge contacts on Android.

Steps to Merge Contacts on Android

1. Open the Google Contacts app on your Android device. If you don't have the app installed already, go to the Google Play Store and download and install the official Google Contacts app.

2. Once the app opens, tap on the "Fix & manage" button in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will take you to the Contacts Fix & manage screen.

3. On the Fix & manage screen, tap on the first option called "Merge & fix" at the top.

4. Here look for the "Merge duplicates" option and tap on it. This will show you a list of all your duplicate contacts.

5. Review the list of duplicate contacts and decide if you want to merge duplicates individually or merge all at once. To merge individual contacts, tap the "Merge" button next to each duplicate contact you want to merge. To merge all duplicates at once, tap the "Merge all" button at the bottom right.

6. After tapping Merge or Merge all, you'll be prompted to verify the merge. Carefully review the contacts being merged and then tap OK to complete the merge process. The selected duplicate contacts will now be merged into single contacts in your Google Contacts app. Review your contacts list to ensure the duplicates were properly merged.


Merging duplicate contacts is a great way to simplify and organize your Android contacts list. Fewer contact entries make it much easier to find people and access their latest contact information. Just follow the steps outlined above to quickly eliminate duplicate entries and merge contacts on your Android device. Your refined contacts list will make your phone much easier to use for calling, texting, emailing, and communicating through your favorite apps.
