One by one, Google applications add a new gesture to speed up account switching. Maps was the first, a week later Drive followed it, and now Contacts is the third app to do so.
V3.8.3 from Contacts implements the new gesture. Just swipe up or down on your avatar picture in the upper right corner – the one you usually tap to access manual account selection – and Contacts will quickly move to the next account. It then scrolls through all of them and then the "all accounts" option, symbolized by the two-person icon you see in the animation above.
The animation used here is new. Where Cards have completely reloaded the entire screen, flashing dark in the middle and Drive uses side map animation, Contacts maintains static screen elements and changes contacts and avatars.
To try it, you can wait for Contacts 3.8.3 to send you to the Play Store or get it manually by APK Mirror.
