Possible errors if your new contact is not displayed

  • Check if the phone number of your new contact is correct.
  • Update the list with your contacts in WhatsApp (see above).
  • Check in the settings if you have given WhatsApp access to the contacts app. This is essential so that WhatsApp can use the contacts and sync them automatically.
  • Check if all accounts and groups of your contacts are marked with the “Visible” or “Displayed” option. Otherwise, the contact may not show up in the list.
  • Open WhatsApp, finally select the menu (three dots or “Menu” on the top right). Now select “Settings” and then “Contacts”. Now select “Show all contacts” to also show contacts hidden in WhatsApp.
