siliconreview Google to roll out its 2.0 version of contact app

The search engine giant Google has recently introduced a version 2.0 of its Contacts app that has hardly changed over the years. The all new update get enhanced plan with a cleaner UI and also adjoins few developments in terms of usability for its Pixel and Nexus users.

Users will not able to mark any changes in the regular contacts list, as the changes are a bit deeper. One of the most obvious changes is cleaner contact page. While the previous version of the app used a gigantic image (taking up the top half of the page) with the bottom half for details, the new one takes that enormous image and turns it into a small circle with the name of the contact underneath it.

With this all new and latest move there is now more space for the contact’s details. So if the users have a contact with a lot of email addresses and numbers, they just will need to scroll less after opening the contact page. While the earlier version of the app shows all contacts from different accounts the synced jointly in one list, there is now an account switcher (similar to the one you get in the Gmail app) that makes things easier.

Just by tapping on the hamburger icon can now gives the user the power to toggle between accounts on the fly. Well that’s not all; the update will allow the users to switch between contacts coming from diverse accounts easily. It also makes them easier to grip, view and sort.

While the other features marked out by the Android Police detail a new exporting feature that lets the users to choose the accounts when exporting the contacts. If a user is new to Android, they will see an innovative splash screen.

The updates regarding the all newly introduced feature will be accessible for Pixel and Nexus users via the Google Play Store.
