Google has finally printed the state Android Phone and Contacts apps around the Play Store today, though predictably only devices which have these system apps preinstalled can really set them up.

Which means you can most likely be prepared to start to see updates to those apps that add features or fixes from the Play Store rather to be stuck inside system updates, that is good. And Google’s began served by updates to both, getting the dialer to v2.3 (from 2.2) and also the contacts application to v1.3 (from 1.2).

What’s new? The dialer application has added call blocking along with a brand-new in call UI for companies identified by google’s Caller Identification system. The brand new UI, pictured top and center of the publish, adds a lot more business info and appears super clever. The brand new call blocking feature within the dialer is proven below. The dialer also now displays the nickname associated with a contact you’ve given a nickname in the search engines Now, rather of utilizing your regular contact name. This is a nice little feature integration. Additionally there is a voicemail message count in case your carrier props up dialer’s visual voicemail message feature.

When it comes to contacts application, it will possess a changelog citing “streamlined editing,” so there might be some changes there. One readers has stated there’s now a toggle in contacts to pick a default take into account adding new contacts for those who have several Google account in your device. Another discovered our opinion is really a new UI for contact linking (note: linking contacts is not new) that seems in individual contact cards which are suspected duplicates.

  1. I hate to be that guy, but what’s the wallpaper on the OnePlus One? I still really miss the original “Galaxy” live wallpaper from the 2.1 days.
