Google Contacts for Android updated with action buttons, large contact photos, more


Google recently updated the Contacts app for Android devices with several improvements that are supposed to make it much easier to use.

There aren't any new features added in the update except for the action buttons in the contacts, which will make it easier to call, text, and do other needed stuff.

The developers also announced that they have listened to user feedback and have decided to bring back the large contact photos. Furthermore, the latest version of Contacts will now allow users to merge all their duplicate contacts at once.

Also, you can now see G Suite Directory info to search and find your work colleagues. Another important improvement added is the option to get automatic suggestions to add contacts that you frequently communicate with across Google.

Last but not least, the new update brings the ability to customize the main Contacts view to show just the labels that you want. Although it's not a major update, these small improvements add to the overall user experience, so they're more than welcome.

I've found that HTC 's native apps are really great in their own right. But, I do have contacts synced to google, just for backup reasons. But, you need to set this up online in your Google account, otherwise, Google only backs up your gmail contacts. You need to import your phone contacts, then enable google in phone settings.
