Google Contacts is the essential foundation that all of our interactions rely upon. Google has released a preview of the new Google Contacts manager, which will be released to all Gmail users in the near future. The contacts manager has been updated to create more ease and effectiveness to access your contacts across all Google platforms.

After looking through the preview of the new Contacts feature this is what we think you should know about it.

1. Sleek and colorful new design



The Contacts manager utilizes Google’s new material design concept by adding color but retaining the simplicity of Google Apps. This gives Contacts a very similar look to Google Inbox and the Admin Console.

2. Easier to navigate

It is now easier to access all of your contacts in one place with the clean and simple side panel. This allows you to navigate contacts from both Gmail and Google+. The ‘Frequently contacted’ option saves you time by pre-selecting contacts with whom you may want to share.

3. Merge duplicate contacts
