Trouble Syncing Contacts with Google on Lem 12 Pro

Hi,

I just received my Lemfo 12 Pro. I am wondering how to sync my contacts with Google. I installed Google Contacts from the Play Store, but, no matter how many times I try, the sync option will not stay on. Any thoughts or is there a 3rd-party app I should be using?

Best,

Rajiv

A update will come to fix this issue :+1:

Hi. Thank you. Alternatively, you can copy contacts from your phone using BlueTooth. Of course, this will risk getting duplicates with multiple copies. Rajiv

Hi. Following up on this issue. Is the technical problem getting the requisite approval for the digital certificates used to authenticate with Google’s servers or something else entirely?

As i said . This issue is already fixed in next update but you will have to be patient

When would it be released for lem 12 Pro?

There is no guarantee it will be . If it does we will let you know

Thank you. Excellent!

Hi. I am following up with a fix to this issue. I tried the steps below and was successfully able to sync my contacts. The instructions that I have written up below explain the process:

Overview:
The Android 10 watches do not come with the Google Contact Sync service automatically installed. It must be installed manually. As an extra measure, please also download the Google Contacts app from the Google Play Store. For the complete steps, see below:

(1) Download the Google Contact Sync app for Android 10 from APKMirror or for easier use, you can also use my Google Drive link https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rwo7qpudBcBEwd7lq29aWHDQ-u_JzFPH/view?usp=drivesdk (your choice).
(2) Install the app and then go to Settings\Apps and Notifications.
(3) Tap on show all apps installed on your device.
(5) Tap on Google Contact Sync, and give it permissions to read your contacts in the permissions area.
(6) Now download Google Contacts from the Play Store, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.contacts&hl=en_US&gl=US
(7) After Google Contacts gets installed, tap on your Google account. This should now allow your contacts to sync automatically from your Google account.

I hope this is useful to other people.

Best,

Rajiv

works without step 6 and 7 as well, but for some reason the stock contacts app shows some peoples number two times. There’s also a calendar sync app (don’t know if it will be helpful): Google Calendar Sync 6.0.44-267540251-release (Android 5.0+) APK Download by Google LLC - APKMirror

To get rid of the duplicate contacts you mentioned in this thread, you can browse to contacts.google.com, There is an option there to merge duplicates.
