New Google Contacts update brings refreshed user interface

Google Contacts is available on the Google Play Store, and this week, a new version went live. The updated version brings a slew of enhancements and UI changes including new action buttons and menus.

Google’s own Contacts application has been treated to an update. By request, Google has brought back the larger contact photos, which were shrunken down with a prior update to the app. There are also some other touches made throughout the app’s interface including new action buttons displayed on every contact page just beneath your friend, colleague or family member’s contact image. The buttons are essentially action shortcuts, and the availability of them depends on how much information you have stored in your phone. Some of the options include: call, text and video chat.

Near the bottom of every contact there’s also a new section, namely ‘Directory.’ Here, you can plug-in information such as one’s job title, position and/or role, work phone, department, office location, and the names of any coworkers such as your manager.

One other feature has been improved by where the app predicts any contact duplicates you may have stored on your device. You’ll be able to merge duplicates if you choose, keep them both, or, delete the one you don’t want from within a new ‘Duplicates’ menu. Additionally, there’s a new ‘Suggestions’ menu under ‘Add people you contact often’ where Google “suggests” contacts to add based on who you communicate with on other Google platforms such as Gmail and Hangouts.
