Ever been using Google Contacts and thought to yourself that it was a pain? If so, Google head your thoughts and it’s responded.
Google Contacts is receiving a massive update that includes a Material Design makeover and a few big changes. In addition to the card-style design and floating action button, users can now more easily merge duplicates, have their contacts updated automatically based on their friends’ Google profile info, and see your recent emails and meetings with a contact when viewing his or her information.
Perhaps the best news about today’s update is that you can try it out right now. You can visit contacts.google.com/preview and begin using all of the new features, and after messing around with it a bit, the changes do seem pretty great. I had more than 100 duplicates in my Google Contacts and after merging a few manually, I clicked “Merge All” and everything was taken care of.
What do you think of this new-look Google Contacts?
