    • Same issue here. Although I can clear my contacts storage and can’t disable it. Also tried the factory reset and still didn’t work, shall I throw it away and be done with it? xD

  1. The simplest way to solve this issue is to remove the Google app./Assistant app.
    The error will go away and then you can Re-Install the Google app. again
