Update Notes for Google Voice, Play Store, Translate, YouTube, YouTube Kids, Contacts, and more (August 11, 2018)

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

If there's anything Android users want, it's more white UI elements. Oh, is that not what you meant with your repeated calls for a dark mode? Google thought you were being sarcastic. As such, it has launched another redesigned app with an all-white Material interface. Get ready for Contacts 3.0 to sear your retinas.

The app itself appears to have all the same menu options and settings. The difference here is that it adopts Google's new Material Design style. The blue top bar is gone, replaced with a white section that transitions seamlessly into the scrollable contact list.

Android Auto adds ability to view full contacts list

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Android Auto is meant to simplify your phone experience so that you can keep your eyes on the road, but that simplification can sometimes be taken too far. For this reason, Google is adding the ability to view your full contacts list. That means that there are now four ways to call someone while connected to Android Auto.

Previously, you could use Assistant, choose from your call lists (favorites, recently placed calls, received calls, missed calls), or manually dial the number to call someone.
