The Contacts app on Android may get a version of Snapchat’s worst feature

The Android 13 Easter Egg on a phone

Google has been steadily improving its Android Contacts app, but the next obvious update may be too intrusive for some. Because it could include Google Maps and Weather information for where your contacts are, it could feel similar to Snapchat’s Snap Map feature.

So far, Google’s Contacts updates have been minor but welcome additions to the app. It received a tablet-optimized layout earlier this year, which is ideal for the new Google Pixel Tablet announced at Google I/O 2023, as well as Birthday reminders. If you have a contact’s birthday information, the app will remind you to call or text them on their special day.
