Contacts v2.6 redesigns labels and continues building toward a new Cleanup Wizard [APK Teardown]

Wednesday, March 28th, 2018

Welcome to a brand new update to Google Contacts. It's actually not all that different, but there are a couple of tweaks to contact pages, particularly to labels. They look a bit better and take less space. A teardown also turns up more progress for an upcoming Cleanup wizard feature. We're still looking for more changes, and as always, you can join in by grabbing the latest update from the download link at the bottom.

Opinion: It should be easier to share and collaborate on some Google services, particularly Chrome and Contacts

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

For the first thirty years of my life, I was a lone wolf both offline and online. Then a funny Tinder conversation (of all places, gosh do I know!) with a stranger turned into a dinner, and we were pretty much inseparable since. Suddenly, most of the "me" decisions became "we," and as much as I like to think that choosing between Google Drive and Dropbox isn't a life or death situation, I do rely a lot on the services I use daily.

Update Notes for Android Wear, Play Store, Maps, YouTube and YouTube Kids, Project Fi, and more (Mar 4, 2018)

Sunday, March 4th, 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.

Google Contacts v2.4 readies multi-SIM support and prepares a new suggestion to fix nameless contacts [APK Teardown]

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

A new version of Google Contacts came out yesterday, but it unfortunately doesn't seem to solve the recent issue with contact syncing that some Oreo users are reporting. This update appears to mostly fix bugs, but it does come with a couple of minor tweaks and some preparation for new feature additions in the future.

What's New

Left: v2.3. Right: v2.4.

I rarely bother with pointing out phrasing changes when they don't actually change any functionality, but since the Suggestions screen will be immediately relevant to the teardown and this change speaks to the nature of what's to come, it's worth giving a mention to this one.

Google Contacts v2.3 may add real-time location sharing [APK Teardown]

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Google is starting off the week with an update to the Contacts app. After poking around for quite some time, it looks like there aren't any notable changes on the surface, but changes to the resources suggest that we'll soon be able to turn on real-time location sharing with other people directly from within the Contacts app.

Google prepares deeper Duo integration with your dialer and Messages, goes live in Phone app v13

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Duo has started to establish itself in Google's Android suite of apps and products, and the company has recently been preparing to integrate it further into its existing apps and thus make it easier for any Duo user to video call their contacts. Now we have one integration going live and two on the way.

For anyone tied into Google's ecosystem, storing and managing contacts is best done with the official Contacts app. The Android version recently saw some minor cosmetic changes, improving its already eye-pleasing material look, and the web interface has also employed the same consistent design language since the start of the year. Until recently, the app was only available on Google branded phones, but now compatibility has been extended.

As of the previous update, Google Contacts could only be downloaded through the Play Store if you had a Pixel, Nexus, Android One, or Google Play Edition device.
