How to delete Gmail contacts on a computer or mobile device: The process to delete Gmail contacts is slightly different on an Android than an iPhone, as Android users will access their Contacts app instead of Gmail.
Gmail allows users to store a contact’s name and email, as well as numerous other details like company, job title, phone number, address and birthday. You can easily delete a Gmail contact on a desktop or mobile device. Here’s how.
