How do I delete an empty user-created group?

2013-02-10, 6:08 AM


I created a group under "People" and then decided that I don't want that specific group. There seems to be no way to delete it? I can only add members.



 



There has to be a way to do this, but I can't seem to find it, and all online instructions I've found either deal with a different model of phone, or deal only with group creation.



 



Thanks for any help!

Is the group you’re trying to delete either Coworkers, Family, or Friends? Apparently those three groups are hardcoded into Android and can’t be deleted.

Click on the group to actually go into it (it may be empty), then tap the menu icon in the upper-right (the 3 vertical dots) and choose delete.


 


If it’s a group on Google Contacts, you can also go there from a browser to manage it.

No joy. When I'm actually in the group, and tap the menu icon, I only get "edit". There's no delete. (And choosing "edit" only opens the add members dialog.)

Huh. That's strange. The group I was hoping to delete was indeed Coworkers, but I thought I remembered creating that group myself.



I must be mistaken.



 



In any case, thanks for the help and the clarification! I guess I'll just live with the empty group (or maybe add a few folks at work who I'm not particularly friendly with for whatever reason...?).
