Contact name search not available on Android?

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 34.0l0
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

I see that in the Contacts API docs it says in the Contact Query docs Android does not support search by name.

In my testing on the emulator, that doesn’t seem quite correct. When I type in partial matches, I don’t get any results, but if I type the contact name exactly I do get a result.

However, this seems to be different from the behavior described in the completed feature request: https://expo.canny.io/feature-requests/p/query-contacts.

Can someone help me understand what I should be expecting here? Unfortunately, if I can’t search for individual contacts by partial name on Android, I won’t be able to use managed expo.
