Is it possible to hide some contact groups from the default People App?

I'm talking in particular about the default Google groups named "Family", "Friends" and "Coworkers"; since I don't use them, and in their stead I have added some other groups that are more useful to me, I'd like to remove or simply hide these default ones, in order to keep the list of groups less cluttered.

Is it possible to do so?


When you log into google contacts you can remove all these groups (and "circles") there. They will disappear from your app after synchronization.


Yes, it is possible using the following navigation path:

  1. People app
  2. Overflow (menu icon)
  3. Contacts to Display option
  4. Customize option (at bottom of list)
  5. Select appropriate Google account
  6. Use check boxes to select which categories are displayed

  • This is not what I have asked. I want to hide the actual groups, not the contacts.
