Google Contacts got a UI revamp two days ago, and we’d been wondering when the Google Phone would get a matching refresh. The wondering ends now – Phone v23 beta has just been released, giving us a look at the latest and greatest phone interface from Google.

As with the Contacts refresh, there don’t appear to be any changes in functionality. There are still four tabs on the bottom, and the settings menu appears to have the same contents. In accordance with all of Google’s latest design updates, the app is now almost completely white, with the blue bars up top gone. Google’s Product Sans has been implemented as well.

You’ll also note that the dialer icon has gone from red to blue. Contacts without profile pictures have been lightened up a bit. The icon itself is also different, with a smaller chunkier phone and a brighter blue background.

I’m enrolled in the Google Phone beta and just got the update via the Play Store, but if you’re not, don’t worry; we have the Google Phone v23 beta APK over at APK Mirror.
