How do you sync contacts from Facebook into the contacts app?


AC Question

I'm trying to sync my facebook friends and their details into the contact app on my Nexus 9 but none of the regular syncing options seem to work for me.

Does anyone have any advice on how to do it? I may just be doing in incorrectly

Welcome to Android Central! I don't think this is supported on Nexus devices. Other devices can do this because of manufacturer-related modifications to the Contacts app and the sync interface--for example, I can sync Facebook contacts into the main Contacts app on my wife's HTC One M8 and my Zenfone 2, but not on my Nexus 5 or Nexus 7. Last time I checked, there aren't any 3rd party apps that can do this, either.
