Nearly all smartphones, including Galaxy, besides iPhones, uses Google’s Android OS in them, so it is obvious that they have Google’s services and applications. As its name suggests, Google Contacts is also a Google service. Let us tell you, Google frequently makes noticeable changes in its interface through its Material You redesign. Now, the Contatcs service has again got two new Material You Widgets. Let’s take a look at them.

Informatively, a few weeks ago, Google brought the Profile Picture options for Contacts which leads you to the contact’s detailed information if you tap on it. Besides, if you make it bigger, you can see Phone and Messaging shortcuts too. Now, in the new version, we will get to see the “Individual Contacts” and “Favorites Contacts” widgets.
