You’ll likewise have the option to see (and invite) contacts and make groups. Individuals rundown can likewise be surfaced through search.
Google still can’t seem to share any images of what this resembles, yet the last fuse made conceivable by the “New Call” button proposes this homescreen will be a lot more limited than the current one.
