Google Contacts has seen quite a few changes in the past year, and the latest is a new “Highlights” tab.
“Highlights” appears between “Contacts” and “Fix & manage” in the Material You bottom bar.
you get a grid of “Favorites” that fits four icons in a row.
It’s more dense than the Phone app’s “Favorites” tab
you can quickly “Add” new ones from the top-right corner.
The grid coexists with the list of Favorites at the top of the main tab.
This is followed by “Recents,” which is a two-tab list that starts with “View recently.”
contact is accompanied by a view date, and the overflow menu lets you clear that history.
Google Contacts is now a three-tab app that also features a navigation drawer in the main list view.
This new Highlights tab could be the primary way people use Google Contacts.
