Sync contacts with phone address book
Sync the Protonmail contacts with the phone address book (contacts app) and vice versa.
This goes all way back to 2015. It has been almost 7 years since ProtonTeam first commented on it.
4 years after in 2019 it was flagged as planned.
Now almost 3 years later, it still hasn't been implemented.
It's the 5th highest voted feature.
Come on ProtonTeam. Contacts is an important thing, not just as an in-mail widget.
This feature is a game changer. Please add it asap.

[From a paid user who just switched and is now thinking of going elsewhere...] The status of this says "Planned" as of Jan 10 2019. That is almost three years ago!! This is a critical requirement for this app to be viable. Requiring the user to maintain two contact lists is just not realistic and is driving against acceptance of Proton.

And also change notifications to not use google services
If you added a mobile Contact app, or at least the ability to sync-back-and-forth from ProtonMail, your user base would increase dramatically. Coming from a paid (Plus) user, considering (Professional), I can't pull the trigger yet. My wife would hate the contact non-mgmt.
Currently, all your users are the die-hard "privacy or death" users who can survive the inconvenience of contact non-mgmt. If you added a contact app, you would get the multitudes of "privacy preferred" users.
There's tons more of those privacy-preferred peeps out there who can't live without a contact app.
that's a top priority indeed
Left google service behind finally. so sad this feature is not implemented yet. pls dev. add this now :)
It would be great to be able to synchronize my ProtonMail contacts with my android phone. Currently, when I get a new contact, I have to save it twice!
This is an important functionality for both desktop and iOS app. ProtonMail Contacts needs to stay automatically synched with my Apple Contacts.
I am almost ready to buy proton as my main mail but this is really a blocker for me. I already need to stay with MS for the OneDrive but if I can't sync my contacts with my phone, it will not work. What's ETA of this feature?
Proton, any news on when this will be released? It's basic functionality.
I agree with what is said here:
it would be fantastic if we could use ProtonContact as our contacts repository, instead of Gmail on Android.
Thinking that a US company can access all my contacts makes me sick.
I've started to migrate all my contacts from Gmail to ProtonMail. But I cannot get rid of Gmail, because there is no way to synchronize the Android contact application with ProtonMail.
(1) technically speaking, I don't know how difficult it is to allow contacts synchronization with something other than Gmail on Android. It may not be possible.
(2) if it is possible to do so with Apple phones, I'll get an iPhone.
So far I'm really pleased with the Proton team tools. The basics include: email, calendar, and contacts. Since Contacts are already built into both the email and calendar, PLEASE bump-out the Contacts as a third-pillar separate but integrated app. That would be a complete suite IMHO. Since you're working on syncing with phone contacts anyway, if we use the ProtonContacts we will no longer need the other unsafe Contacts manager apps! PLEEZE? Thank you!
A standard feature that simply needs it.
Please make it a top priority !
I'm honestly close to ditching proton mail mainly due to the lack of this and calendar synching. If you can't provide basic functionality it is going to be hard to attract and keep users.
Please work on it, it's essential this sync with contacts on android !
This is basically the only thing stopping me from paying for an account and fully moving to protonmail, would be a really good feature!
Hi, Proton dev. team, any ETA on this most requested ? Thank you
Still hoping to see this. I have a Visionary account, but it drives me nuts that I still have to maintain two separate contact lists - one in Proton and on my phone for iMessage.
