Dear Experts and All,

I am getting a trouble with Google Contacts app on my S23 Ultra that it cannot give searching result when I search by texts/name that these texts/name are in the middle and separated by dots.

for examples: I save a contact's name as follow: Company.Name.function, then I need to search "Name" and fill "Name" into search field, the app cannot give the result of Company.Name.function, but when I fill "Company" into search field, the contact name "Company.Name.function" appears.

I recorded a strange behavior as follow, I uninstalled and re-installed it, opened it for the first time, the issue gone, but when I closed it, open app again, search the name, issue happened again.

I also clear cache but issue still happens,

Now I cannot search anything excepting first name.

If you have solutions, please help

Thanks so much.

Kind regards,

Don
