There are over 1.8 billion people in this world who use Gmail. That’s an incredibly impressive number. However, not everyone is a fan of the contact management portion of Gmail. While Google Contacts is well-integrated with Gmail, it doesn’t give users much information to work with and it saves every single person you contact, which can call for a lot of regular maintenance.
We think better contact management is the key to making you more awesome with people – and a better understanding of your contacts results in better relationships. So we decided to take our Contacts+ contact management experience and make it work right within your Gmail.
Today, we’re excited to introduce you to Contacts+ for Gmail.
Hover Over an Email Address, Get Context
Who prefers more efficient follow-up? We built Contacts+ for Gmail so you can get all the information you need on your contacts without leaving your inbox.
With Contacts+ for Gmail, when you hover over or type in a new email address, you’ll see a complete 360-degree view of that contact. We’ve included a complete profile of your contact, including a photo, social profile links, and more.
Additionally, we’ve included company info to help you know more about where your contacts work. Just select the Company tab, and we’ll fill you in on things like company size, date founded, phone number, address, and more.
You can see all this info for your own Google Contacts, as well as any email you open in Gmail – even if the person isn’t in your contacts.
