New Features For Gmail Contacts

Gmail Contacts Gets a Bunch of Useful New Features

If you're an avid Gmail user you've probably noticed a slight difference in the way it looks. Gmail has released a new update that mainly affects the contacts page, but also affects the way your inbox looks. Responding to user feedback requesting easier-to-use features and more sorting options, keyboard shortcuts, and custom labels, an overhauled version of Gmail Contacts was released to users earlier this week.

Find out about the new features after the break.

According to the official Google blog post, "Contacts now works more like the rest of Gmail, so if you know how to use Gmail, now you should automatically feel comfortable in Contacts too." New features include keyboard shortcuts (for a full list, open Contacts and hit "?"), sorting by last name, automatic saving, and a larger and more prominent Notes field. Google also released slight tweaks to your Gmail inbox, making your contacts more accessible and easy to find.

I'm not an avid Contacts user so I don't know that I'll take advantage of all of these upgrades. What about you? Are you happy with Gmail's new look?

I agree exchequette! I use Gmail as my primary email account along also, along with many of the other Google Accounts. I love the new merge duplicate contacts feature! It helped me clean up my not so tidy list.

I love it. Google had become my primary contact list, even more than my phone. Now I can group and sort and edit and... oh it's my kind of fun!
