Hi to all, does anyone know why the "show all contacts" option dissapeared on last Whatsapp version (2.18.9) from settings contacts section?
With this option missing, all the contacts, including the ones that I decided not to show, are listed in Whatsapp
Does anyone have the same issue?
Thank you
pd: sorry if this request is in the wrong area, I'm new here

Its also bad for me! I loved option "show All Contacts". F.kn Facebook makes everything, like that how they want, after buying it.
MAYBE* we can install a separate contacts application where we save contacts, which we dont want to have them in whatsapp but also not blocking them.

finally a post about that. in google contacts i organized all things. "my contacts" shows all contacts i use, and let others inside another category. in phone i set custom list and mark google my contacts and starred in android. in whatsapp disable "all contacts".

this way worked fine till that option disappear. now many contacts i don't want in whatsapp are showing. it seems whatsapp is accessing google account and it brings all stuff.

thumbs down. :/
