Device Contacts in Contacts+ for Android

How can I sync Contacts+ with my Mac's native Contacts app?

1. Create a Contacts+ account here.


2. Connect Google Contacts, iCloud contacts, or your Exchange/Office 365 address book.

3. Connect social networks.

4. Enable iCloud/Google/Exchange as your *only* contact source on your devices using System Preferences -> Internet Accounts -> connect iCloud, Google or Exchange and allow access to Contacts. 

By doing so, you'll alleviate seeing duplicates in the native Contacts app on your smartphone.

You likely have multiple sources showing. Open your Mac's Contacts app -> click View -> click Show Groups -> enable only one contact source (for example, only 'All Google', 'All iCloud' or 'All Contacts+').


Why am I not seeing some of my local contacts in the Contacts+ for Mac app?

  1. Open Contacts
