Re: Group Contacts lost in Nougat

Contact Groups are essential to how I use my phone. There was absolutely no reason to remove it (or if there was, please tell us why!) Bring it back immediately and please make an official announcement about it.
As previous poster has said, so far the Nougat "update" has added nothing I want, caused a lot more application crashes and has ruined this useful feature.

Re: Group Contacts lost in Nougat

I have found some features of the new update to be useful and improved, but it's still the lack of group contacts which constantly annoy me. I had to finally download a third party contacts app, which allows me to access my groups and supports SMS. Let me know if you would like the name of the app and I will post it.

 

Also, I don't understand why the contacts app now needs to know my location to work.

Re: Latest Sony Xperia Z5 compact Android 7.0 update Nougat

I had to finally download ZenUI Dialer & Contacts, which shows the group contacts and lets me send SMS to them.

Sending Text Messages to multiple contacts

Since upgrading to Android 7, I can't select multiple contact to send a text message to. I have to select each contact then go back and add another, whereas before I selected each contact by selecting them.

Any tips on how to restore this?

Re: Group Contacts lost in Nougat

This is bad move by Sony Mobile. Organization contacts by group has always been part of the contacts through many versions of android since 2010.

 

Complain to Sony Mobile and demand they bring it back.

Re: Group Contacts lost in Nougat

I'm experiencing the same issue...

That is really bad. I use to send sms to my groups at least each 2 days...
