At the very right of the screen, you’ll notice the new profile avatar which replaced the customize view. Clicking the avatar can be used to switch users or a short cut to see contacts from all of your accounts. The avatar works precisely the same as we’ve seen it work on Gmail, letting you know which user is selected.

Upon launching the application for the first time “contacts” appears before revealing the overflow button. Due to the “All contacts” button being moved from the hamburger menu, the nav drawer now appears smaller. It is pretty clear that Google Material is focusing its efforts towards new account switcher while running away from the older nav drawer. We’ve already seen it happening with Gmail, the Google app and more, maybe we just haven’t noticed until now.

For the past week, Google Contacts has been rolling out via the Play Store. If you haven’t got it yet, start downloading the latest apk from APKMirror.
