    The app sync.me in the playstore works great to keep you Facebook contacts synced

    Facebook have removed the sync feature altogether something to do with privacy. I haven't found a good app for doing the job yet either..

    You have to Uninstall the current facebook you have installed and install this one.


    It should auto open and accept it then install but make sure you don't have auto update on or it won't work. Then once installed login and update contact.
    That is what I did.

    What is it? An older version of the app?

    Apkmirror has loads of previous versions: http://www.apkmirror.com/?s=FACEBOOK&post_type=apps_post

    This also doesn't work as there isn't a sync contacts option in that version

    Did you try sync.me?

    Only with the Contacts you already had on phone.
  13. My Galaxy S6 won't update to anything below version 35 (since it came with the phone). What would be the best workaround?

    I was stuck on this for a very long time. The only way is to downgrade your facebook app to a lower verison. I am currently running facebook app version 27. Facebook stop syncing contacts in the newer version. STUPID of them. You can delete it and redownload it here . http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/facebo...e/facebook-27-0-0-25-15-android-apk-download/

    Not sure for the NOTE5 since facebook is preinstalled - if you can delete it then it should work. Good luck.
  16. So here is my hint, I did not solve the problem yet but have a clue what is going on.
    Look at the attached gif! when I first start up facebook on the new marshmallow on my note 4 and log in I notice an approval request on my status bar, when clicking on it it doesn't however give me the option to approve.

    This used to work with android 5 1.gif
