Google Contacts now shows the date you added new people in the bottom bar

It was spotted a month ago, but now the Google Contacts bottom bar redesign has been widely rolled out, with the Android app showing the date you added an individual.

The bottom bar with two tabs continues to look odd, particularly since there is still a navigation drawer for switching accounts and showing/creating new labels. This weirdness is exacerbated by the tall Material You variant.
“Contacts” is the first section, while the app’s various tools are now listed and more prominent in “Fix & merge.” Meanwhile, settings can be accessed by tapping your profile avatar.

Google Contacts now keeps track of when you add someone to the app. A listing will display this information (monthly, day, and year) at the bottom. From now on, the added date will only appear for new contacts rather than existing contacts in your Google Account. It’s also not synced over to contacts.google.com.

Both enhancements were rolled out today with version 3.65.2.x of Google Contacts. We started selling the bottom bar a month ago and gradually expanded its distribution over the past few weeks, but now it is widely available.
