Here is the first view of Android M dialer app and Default apps UI. Google introduced this whole default app thing to Android and it remains one of the OS's nicest features.

With Android M, it looks like we're finally getting a way to manage defaults without just using the draconian "reset app preferences" button. Here's what it looks like - just go to apps area in settings and hit the 3-dot menu.

Android M has a lot of cool new features, and we're working hard to highlight as many of the good ones as we can. In this post, I'm going to quickly go over some of the changes we're seeing in the stock dialer app, which actually got a bit of a refresh all around.

First up, space is being used more efficiently, thanks to the most recent call card no longer being a thing. Previously, in Lollipop, the dialer would display a dismissible card with your last call, showing things like call back, add to contacts, and send SMS. This used a fair bit of screen space, and on Android M, that card thing appears to be gone.
