One of the most wonderful aspects of the Android Operating system is the sheer number of flavors it comes in thanks to the variety of OEMs. Each UI or skin based on the core Android OS comes with its own list of unique features, sometimes to the point where even the basic features work a little differently from the default apps. However, if you are someone who prefers using the default Google services apps in your Android smartphone, you can actually go ahead and download them from the Play Store. One of the best default Google apps for your Android smartphone is Google Contacts.
Google Contacts is an excellent contact app and can easily replace the default contacts application you have on your Android device. What I personally love about the Google Contacts platform is that you can actually restore contacts you have deleted over time.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to restore deleted contacts on Android.
Step 1. Tap to open the Google Contacts app on your Android smartphone.
Step 2. Tap on the ‘three-line‘ icon on the top left-hand side of the Google Contacts app.
Step 3. Tap on the ‘Settings‘ option from the menu.
Step 4. Scroll down the list and tap on the ‘Undo Changes‘ option.
Step 5. Choose the Google account you want to undo changes to contacts from.
Step 6. Now, you can choose to undo the status of your contacts as back as 30 days.
Step 7. Tap on the ‘Confirm‘ option to undo changes to your contact list.
What happens now is that the Google account now reverts your contact list back to what it was based on the rewind option you chose. So, for example, if you chose to undo changes made 10 minutes ago, your contact list will be reverted to what it was 10 minutes back. This means any deleted contacts within the time frame will be restored. This is how you can easily recover deleted contacts on Android.
