How to Sync Your Facebook Contacts to Android?

Facebook has gone from being just another social network to an essential contact tool for both work and pleasure.


Thankfully it’s very easy to sync your Facebook contacts with any Android device.

UPDATE – since a recent app version update, Facebook removed the contacts sync options from Android. To add pictures to your contacts you can use an app like Covve. Covve scans over 100 sources for publicly available info such as pictures, company, job and social profiles. As long as your contacts have an email and there’s publicly available info for them, Covve will fetch it for you – find out more here

1.  On your phone go to your SETTINGS menu.

2. There will be an ‘add account’ or ‘cloud and accounts’ option.

In your phone go to your settings menu and ‘add account’ or ‘clouds and accounts’ option

3.  You should see Facebook on the list of accounts. Either check the box or tap ‘sync’ and your Facebook contacts should then show up in your phone contact list.


There should also be options to sync calendar, schedule and Facebook feed for maximum integration.


If you don’t see Facebook in the list of accounts you will need to install the app from play store and then follow the steps above.


If you find that there are duplicates of certain contacts, you can use Covve’s de-duplication option to tidy up your contact list.
