Google Contacts is replacing hamburger menu with bottom bar
Google Contacts app for Android received its initial Material You makeover last year but now the developers are updating some more parts of the app to be in line with the current design guidelines of Google. Now Contacts app has got Material You bottom bar by replacing hamburger menu.
According to the reports the new interface is rolling out as a server-side switch that the avid developers might be able to activate manually for themselves.
It looks like the new design is part of Google’s larger plan to eradicate hamburger menu as it is getting out of reach at a very rapid rate. The transition is making lots of sense but the overall strategy of Google on this is a bit muddy at the moment. It seems that Google Messages app is bound to receive ham hamburger menu after removing it recently plus it has also been spotted that Google Photos app is also experimenting with the one too.
