Contact management Google Contacts is one of those apps and platforms that operate more in the background but are still very important and should therefore be reliable. Now an update for the Android app is just around the corner, which has new navigation in its luggage and will probably say goodbye to the hamburger menu for good. Instead, there’s a new navigation bar at the bottom.

Google Contacts is a fairly simple contact manager that can be used both on the web and via an Android app and offers a rather simple interface. As a user, however, you have to get used to the new navigation, because the hamburger menu that has always existed has been removed from the app and replaced by a navigation bar at the bottom. The new bar currently only has two areas, namely the contact list itself and a “Fix & Manage” button with all the additional functions.
On the right screenshot above you can see the new variant. At first glance, it is very reminiscent of Google Photos, where a whole range of additional functions have also ended up in such a button hell. Interestingly, there are more entries than before in the hamburger menu, so it is comparable to a major renovation. Even if it doesn’t look very clear at first glance, it seems to be the better solution.
The fact that the hamburger menu will soon be celebrating a comeback in Google Messages and Google Photos doesn’t quite fit in with that.
