Android: Google’s released the stock phone and contacts apps to the Play Store, breaking them away from Android, which means we’ll start to see more regular updates with sweet new features.
To get things started, Google’s added a couple new niceties to the stock phone app. You can now block callers from the dialer, and when you call a business that Google recognises, you can now see relevant information like where it is and when it will open. More importantly, now that these apps are separate from the core Android operating system, updates can happen more quickly.
