Did you enter your user account's password, or did you enter the
code you get after going to the approval URL?
To be clear, you cannot use your normal password for this. You
need to enter an approval URL received from Google when you visit
the URL by clicking on the "Approve Jitsi's access to
This may be a bit unclear. I have received some feedback with
suggestions on how to improve. For now, please see my email in
dev-list or I'll post the relevant bit below.
However, OAuth 2 works slightly different and Jitsi depends on 1
additional step from the user. The first time Google Contacts is used
for a Google account in Jitsi, the user will have to approve Jitsi for
access to the contacts of your account. (Once for every configured account.)
So how does that work?
1. Configure your Google account as you would normally. (If you did this
already, then you need not repeat this step.)
2. On first usage, Jitsi will show a popup asking you to visit a URL by
clicking the provided link. This link takes you to a Google URL at which
Google will ask you to approve a Jitsi for access to your contacts. This
will allow Jitsi to download profile data for your contacts.
PLEASE NOTE that you need to approve the account that is named in the
popup window. You may need to log in with the correct Google account for
3. After approving, you will go to a new website on which Google
provides you with an access code. This code needs to be copied to the
Jitsi popup dialog. Once confirmed, Jitsi will get access to the
account. A token is stored (safely, like passwords) for future use.
Every next time you will use Google Contacts, Jitsi will automatically
request access using the token it received earlier. Unless you lose your
Jitsi configuration, you should not need to approve access anymore. It
is also possible to revoke Jitsi's access. You can find this option in
the Security options of your Google account. (Log in to Google.)

When I want to search for a contact, I have to input my password

for "test". I type 't' and type in my password- > type 'e'
and type in my password -> 's' ... -> 't'
That's a "little" annoying, because the password is a app
specific password for 2 step authentication, so I usually should
generate it once and forget it.
But the most important part is: It's not working, non of the
gmail contacts are in the search results. And there is no error
message (I guess that is the rough edge you mentioned), I can
leave the password field empty or type what ever I want, nothing
