Say, I have installed Skype on an Android Blackberry KEYONE. It has duplicated my Google Contacts, made an additional contact for Skype and many blank Google Contacts.
Is there a way to reverse this?
Is there a way to set up Skype so that it does not interface with my Google Contacts at all? I do not need it to have access to my Google Contacts.

Hi shaunwingin,
 
Here are the two steps to remove contacts on Skype for Android.

To remove a contact.

1.Start Skype.

2. From the People list, tap and hold the contact you’d like to remove

3. Tap Remove contact

4. Tap Yes
 

Below is the second option you can try

Go to your People list and select a contact you want to remove. Press the menu button on your device or tap the menu icon and select Remove contact.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Stacy Richard

Removing the skype account from Google contacts was always a certain fix, but I'm quite certain Stacy's suggested methods would have also worked.
