Hi!
Just noticed my new iPhone SE 2020, in which I have my Google account synced has an issue with contact pictures.
They are being perfectly synced from my Google account, but there are no contact pictures showed.
Any idea to solve this?

I gave up a year ago and moved all my contacts to iCloud. It used to work fine, then a new version of iOS messed it up (no more full screen contact photos with Google Contacts and sometimes no photos at all) and I guess it’s even worse now hearing your experience.

What happens if you change or add a contact photo of 1 person on your iPhone? Does it get synced correctly to Google?

It does sync perfectly. Only gripe is it does not sync any of the contact pictures.

Just noticed that some of the contacts get their picure synced.
Only a few others don't, which does not make any sense.
Neve happened before.
Any clue?

Update on this: just confirmed that the pictures note being synced are those defined directly by the people in their google account. All contacts whose pictures were added y me are syncing just fine. All other people for whom contact picture is fetched from their google account do not have contact picture on iPhone.
No one else noticed this?
