Choose displayed contacts

By default, all saved contacts from a Google Account or the OnePlus smartphone's internal memory are displayed as a list.

However, if we have contact groups or labels that contain, for example, work colleagues, we can always edit the display of contacts to separate private or professional contact information.

Default account for new contacts

We can set the default account for newly created contacts on the OnePlus smartphone so we don't always have to manually select the desired location during creation.

Once set, the new contacts are automatically stored in the desired account until this is changed.

Note: To temporarily change the location for new contacts, the account can be manually selected at the top of the screen during creation.
For example, if multiple Google accounts have been linked to the OnePlus device, all accounts will be displayed as possible contact stores.
