The Google contact management application has a new section. Inside this is a new feature: it shows nothing but the upcoming birthdays of your contacts. Something not to “forget” the birthdays of your friends or family.
Facebook was traditionally the one that reminded us of our friends’ birthdays. Google has been doing it for a while now, too, in various places on our smartphones. This has been the case for some time on the Google Assistant, and more recently, Google Messages has started reminding you of birthdays as well. It is the turn of Google Contacts, the contact management application pre-installed on Android smartphones, to remind you of birthdays, as has been verified 9to5Google.

If in the base, this application is only used to list your contacts, now it is “proactiveon how to manage them. Google Contacts is no longer just a directory, but a real application of “management“. It is also changing its interface, with a redesign of the widgets that will arrive in the coming months.
