No more endless lists or having to go from contact to contact manually eliminating those that are duplicated, a really tedious task and surely many, unfortunately, already know.

There are people who are even lazy about changing their mobile because they have to move and organize their agenda again. However, there are applications to eliminate duplicate contacts with ease.

Duplicate contacts

This application is the simplest of all. Just install it and instantly locate your duplicate contacts, both your Google-type accounts and WhatsApp messaging applications.

The application shows you a list of all those double contacts. You can see all the names in your diary in alphabetical order for your convenience.

If you are satisfied, just press the ‘Delete selected” button and they will be instantly deleted. You can also make a manual selection. Easy and fast.

Merge+ can also help you to clean up your contact list and organise it so that you can manage it much more effectively.

It can also be downloaded for free from Google Play. When we download the application we will be offered two options: ‘Find duplicates’ and ‘Download Contacts+’.

Once we click on ‘Find duplicates’, the application will begin to track our schedule. When completed, we will receive a notification with duplicate contacts in our notification bar.

Clicking on the notification will reopen the application to give us the option to merge those duplicate contacts.

We can select which we want to merge and which we don’t. Once selected, all you have to do is press the ‘Merge’ button at the bottom of the screen. An alert message will be sent to us before the operation is carried out. That’s all there is to it.

If you have duplicate contacts you will see a warning at the top or you can also search for them in the menu on the left. Now you can choose one by one the contacts you want to combine.

As a tip I recommend having all your contacts in your Gmail account. That way they’re always in sync on every device. When you save a new contact, make sure your Gmail account is selected and you’re not saving the contact to your phone.
