Create contact group

We can add the contacts on the Xiaomi smartphone to different groups, which allows us to send group messages. We can assign a different ringtone to each group so that we can tell from the ringing which one is calling, whether it's friends or work, for example. When creating a new group, we're asked if we want to save it locally only or sync it to our Google Account.
