    Ive been raising a rather annoying contacts bug from quite some time and i dont seem to get any reply from any of the bug hunters! there is no status or update provided on the same as well! i have even gone through the pain of individually messaging @Lynn T ,, @ Bobby D ,,, @Manu J ,,, @reesejp and many others but guess what ? they dont bother replying! why would you ask for a bug report if you dont plan on acting on it ? i have attached the bug report link here as well, if you could confirm the same issue and up vote it maybe this can get some notice!

    Thank you

    Do you have the number on both Google and local?

    For example, I saved all contacts in the Google Account..
    In the contacts app there is the possibility to show contacts from several accounts..
    Therefore, I always go into the settings and select only the appropriate account because otherwise my contacts from my second Google account would also show up and I would have everything twice...

    Please go to contacts manager and try suggested links and suggested merges. It takes less than two mins to sort this out.

    hii, I own a pixel 2 xl as well and this issue doesn't persist there. I'm talking about using the DIALER QUICK SEARCH . Please try using the keypad and try doing a speed dial you will see duplication

    hi guys. thank you for your response on this matter. I have attached a screenshot which should make it very clear for you that this is a bug and you can check this yourself. you should have contacts synced with Google for this. notice the attached screen shot. when you save a contact by default , there are spaces created and WhatsApp is not able to link them to Google and shows up seperate. notice the top 2 contacts here. they don't have spaces in them but they are indeed on WhatsApp too. I have removed the spaces manually and now WhatsApp has linked them exactly how it's supposed to work like. notice the 3&4 contacts you will see the duplication of the same number , one with space and one without spaces.

    I've checked mine and yes, even I have multiple entries for the same number for a single contact. Maybe that happened because I imported contacts more than once.

    But that hasn't whatsapp ability to link. Some of my contacts only has spaces in their numbers and whatsapp still picks them up. If it creates a duplicate entry, I just use suggested merges and suggested links in contacts manager.

    hey thank you for your response. can you check the contacts who are also on WhatsApp in the DIALER SPEED SEARCH ? DIALER SEARCH HERE IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE. please use the keypad(numpas) to search the contacts in the dialer/phone app

    WhatsApp is only linking the contacts where there are no spaces. if there are spaces, WhatsApp is creating a duplicate entry which does not appear on the suggested links or merge.
