Contact Pictures

Hello everyone, this topic was covered briefly in another section, but I wanted to post it here to see if you guys could help me out.

In regards to contacts, should my contact pictures automatically download to my phone assuming that contact has a Google account and a picture up loaded? I know it seems like a small thing, but I think it is pretty cool.

Somehow, I had my wife's picture on her contact but I was messing with the phones and now I cannot replicate it.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

My contact pictures were exported from Facebook, so I'm not sure about the Google option.

If you download your wife's picture to your phone you can import it into your contacts.

Open contacts; tap on the contact you want to edit; choose edit from the menu.

You'll see a blank square where the photo should be. Tap on it and you'll go to your gallery, where you can pick the photo you want to use.

When I did this the app zeroed in on my wife's face (facial recognition?) and essentially automatically chose it for my contact list.
