Google is offering up a preview of the new version of Google Contacts today. Contacts is getting a big visual overhaul to make it easier to manage your contacts and see everything you've been talking about.
The new design makes it a lot easier to get rid of duplicates and it makes sure contacts are kept up to date by tapping into their Google profile. Likewise, you can now see your most recent emails and meetings with a person right in their contact card. You can try out the new Contacts by heading to contacts.google.com/preview.
