DOES NOT WORK. The only options are "delete" or "share." WHERE is the "add contacts to favorites" show up??? I do NOT see it. If it was this easy I would have--DUH--already had the answer. My system is updated to Android 8.1.0. My Contacts version is 1.7.10. I am NOT able to add to favorites from my Contacts with anything I have tried.

then touch to add the contact to Favorites.
