Google Contacts now has more than half a billion downloads on the Play Store, to join the likes of Android Auto, Google Files, and more…
Google Contacts first appeared on the Play Store back in December of 2015. Now, five years later, it has accumulated over 500 million installations. It came as a result of a need to receive updates outside of full-system upgrades. And, it automatically syncs with users’ personal Google accounts. (So, when switching to a new device, those contacts are seamlessly transferred.)
Google Contacts Surpasses 500 Million Downloads from the Play Store
Google Contacts, like a few notable other Android apps, comes preinstalled by default on Pixel (and Nexus) phones. Plus, it’s been the default choice for some other third-party devices, including the Surface Duo. Despite that bit of help, it’s still enjoyed huge popularity, with a current rating of 4.3 out of 5 on the Play Store, from more than 430,000 user reviews.
For anyone who is looking for a solid contacts manager, Google Contacts does the job nicely. It’s available on the Google Play Store for download.
