Google Phone’s new three-column Favorites UI is rolling out

Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Back in August, we spotted a redesigned Favorites tab for Google's Phone app that was met with the approval of many readers. It's taken four months for this UI to start reaching users' phones. Luckily, it does appear to be a pretty widespread rollout.

The main change here is obviously the circular icons for contacts marked as Favorites. The previous interface had been around for a while and was starting to look a bit dated, so this is a welcome redesign.

Google is working on a new Favorites tab for the Phone app [APK Teardown]

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Following the update to the Android Messages app, a matching update to its Phone app was also shipped for Pixels and other Google-supported handsets. The story is the same, though the visual changes look less severe since the old versions were already less colorful and contact photos were a bit more dominant. There aren't any live functional changes for the general public, but there is one notable change to the Favorites tab in the works.

Todoist lets you pin projects, labels, and filters to your favorites

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

I use the task manager Todoist every day to stay on top of my pending orders at the pharmacy and I have learned every trick in the book to make the most of it. There's one feature, however, that I never knew I needed this much until it begun rolling out to beta testers last week and started making its way to the stable app today: Favorites.

I have multiple projects and labels to manage, and often find myself on the web app either reaching for the pointer to manually switch between them or using keyboard shortcuts to get to them.

Version 3.4 of Google Photos started rolling out earlier today, and like so many other recent app updates, you're probably not going to see much in the way of changes. This is a pretty common theme around this time of year as Google prepares to launch new hardware and services.
