Redesigning Google Contacts to Remove Navigation Drawers

Redesigning Google Contacts to Remove Navigation Drawers

After implementing Messages last year, Google Contacts is now the latest app to replace its navigation drawer as part of a small redesign today that works towards simplification.

Previously, the main “Contacts” tab used a navigation drawer to show available accounts and labels.

The hamburger button located to the left of the search field is being replaced with a magnifying glass icon to match the “Search” tab.

Simultaneously, there’s a new dropdown menu to switch between “All Contacts” and any other accounts you have on the device.

You’ll also find a “Display Preferences” instead of the full menu next to your profile picture.

On the right is the Categories selector, displaying a new sheet with the ability to create a new sheet.

Finally, there’s a new icon at the end of this row to show/hide filter factors for phone contacts, email contacts, and company contacts. These changes, especially the latter, help clean up Google Contacts.

The top part of the app now looks cleaner and less cluttered. Meanwhile, the slow move away from navigation drawers continues.

On tablets, the Floating Action Button (FAB) moves to the corner without the hamburger icon.

This navigation redesign is rolling out with version 4.27.26.x of Google Contacts for Android.
