— -- Google Contacts are getting a makeover.
Google revealed a preview of the revamped contacts on its Gmail blog, showing off a clean and colorful new design that makes it much easier to find information.
Instead of sorting through a long, drab list of contacts, Google has neatly packaged a person's contacts into different categories. A navigation bar on the left side of the page allows users to quickly jump to frequent contacts, groups, circles and various other tabs.
Contact cards feature the information a user has stored about that person, but the updated version is also enhanced with information a contact may publicly share about themselves on Google.
It's also easy to find and consolidate duplicate contacts with just the click of a button, making it that much easier to get in touch with someone.
Gmail users can check out the update by visiting their preview page. Google Apps customers will have to wait a bit longer, as the company said they're still working on implementing the changes.
