Contacts is a feature that’s incredibly useful but it’s hidden within the Gmail interface
Google Contacts is good enough to be the only contact manager that most people will ever need. Besides integrating perfectly with Gmail, it can be synchronised with most of the major smartphone platforms so that you have all of your most needed contacts with you all of the time. This lets you amend and add new contacts when you receive them and also call them at the touch of a button. They can be integrated automatically with Facebook and other social networks and even used as points to navigate to with one tap.
You can use Google Contacts for business or pleasure. Groups can be set up for specific companies and photos added to each contact so you will never forget a face again.
Get started with Google Contacts
1: Finding Google Contacts
In the main Gmail interface, it may not be obvious where to find Contacts. Well, it’s hidden away slightly. Click on the Gmail title in the top-left corner, and a drop-down menu will appear where you can select Contacts or Tasks.
2: Add your first contact
In the left-hand panel you will see a ‘New contact’ button. Click this to bring up the fields you need to complete to add new contacts. There are many fields to complete such as phone, email, etc, but try to fill in as many as possible.
3. Complete the contact
You can now click the ‘Add’ button at the bottom to include relevant fields. Everything from relationship to nicknames can be added, and this will make finding the contact a lot easier. The notes field is also useful if you want to add random information about an individual.
