What? Don’t synchronize all contacts with Google Contacts on your smartphone? This is obviously the main function of the app. So, what should I do?

Actually, this is a special problem for devices running on Android 8.0 Oreo and later. Some users have noticed the problem. And then, there is a solution mentioned. Then, before the Mountain View solves this, you can do something about it.

You know, some contacts have a link in the profile. The RUL for the link will be added. Of course, you have found someone via Google+, the synchronization works well for Google Contacts. But if a contact has another link URL link Facebook in the profile, some users may have a problem when syncing Google Contacts. OK, remove it and the problem is solved immediately.

And then, the links are unfortunately not visible in the Android app. So you have to webpage of Google Contacts to adjust your contacts. You can remove the link URL which is listed under the email address for the contacts that don’t synchronize.
