Google Pay Send mysteriously returns to Contacts, but is still unavailable in Assistant, Gmail, and Messages

It looks like Google is silently removing the option to send peer-to-peer transactions via Google Pay Send from its apps in the US. This follows the complete shutdown of the P2P service in the UK. For two of our tipsters, the option to send and receive money from friends via the Messages app has been missing for a few days, and now a Google support page has surfaced that confirms that the functionality is being stripped from the Assistant, Gmail, and Contacts, but it has returned to the latter mysteriously. Either way, you'll likely only be able to use the Pay app to move money to friends in the future.

How to restore deleted contacts in Google Contacts

You may know the dread of checking your contacts only to find that some (or all) of them have been deleted. And it’s a real pain to try to piece that information back together. Fortunately for those who use Google Contacts, all hope is not lost. You can, in fact, restore your contacts within 30 days of losing them. The downside is that the process is pretty ham-fisted, devoid of details such as which contacts are actually missing.

Google Contacts can now back up and sync contacts saved to your phone's internal storage

Google Contacts is particularly useful if you want to sync your contacts to your Google account and ensure you never lose them, but until now it hasn't been able to back up information stored on a phone's internal storage.

Google Contacts for web adds back the ability to create multiple contacts

Last year, Google finished its slow rollout of the newly Material-themed web interface for Contacts. While the visual upgrade was inarguably prettier, it ended up losing a pretty handy feature: the ability to add multiple names and/or email addresses at once. Fortunately, the feature recently reappeared, and you're now able to create multiple contacts, choose a label for them, or import them from a CSV or vCard file.

Google Contacts can now find people you haven't saved to your account (APK Download)

Google keeps a list of everyone you reach out to or receive an email from on Gmail. Even if you don't add that person to your contacts, you can easily find them in the "Other" category, accessible at contacts.google.com/other. However, there was no way to get to that list from the Contacts app on Android. Google has now rectified that oversight, but only in search results.

Google is testing a boxier editing page in Contacts [APK Download]

Google Contacts is among the more popular contacts app, even on phones with preinstalled OEM alternatives, mainly for its clean look. The app got a dark mode much before it became a fad, and received the account switching gesture recently. That “clean look” part, however, may be up for a change as the company is now testing a redesign that seemingly clutters the contacts editing page.

Google Contacts 3.5.7 improves dark mode settings [APK Download]

It's been a few months since Google Contacts added a dark mode, saving poor eyes and OLED panels in one fell swoop from the evils of an all-white interface. With the latest version of Contacts, the dark mode settings have been changed a little, introducing a forced light and dark mode, as well as one that follows the system default.

New Google Contacts web app is here to stay, becoming only option in 2019

The redesigned Google Contacts web app has been in development since 2015, and it was recently updated to match Gmail's new look (thanks Edric and Wyatt). You've always been able to use the older version if you wanted, but that option is going away soon — Google has said the new Contacts web app will entirely replace the old version by February 2019.
