Google Contacts has long been one of the most useful and under-appreciated aspects of Gmail. It allows you to store and share contact information with any of your Gmail contacts, as well as with people who use other email providers like Yahoo Mail, Outlook, AOL, and more. But did you know that there are some really cool tricks to using Google Contacts? Here are 10 things you didn’t know you could do with Google Contacts! 10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do With Google Contacts
1) Create a searchable database of your contacts
Table of Contents
Google Contacts is a nice way to keep all of your contacts in one place and have easy access to them. But there are some other nifty tricks you can do with it. Here are ten of the best.
1) Create a new contact from an email: Double-click on the sender’s name in the To field and select Add to contacts. If you want, add more information about the contact, including their phone number or address.
2) Merge duplicate contacts
Google Contacts can be a great tool for managing all of your contacts. However, it’s not always easy to keep all of your contacts organized. Luckily, there are many ways that you can merge duplicate contacts within the app.
1) Start by opening the menu and selecting ‘merge duplicates’. The app will then search through your contact list and find any duplicate entries with matching phone numbers or email addresses. 2) If you don’t want the app to automatically merge any matches that it finds, select ‘show only duplicates with matching names’ instead.
3) Resend mail to multiple recipients
In order to send an email to multiple recipients at once, you’ll first need to create a group. First, go to the contact card of one of the people you want in your group. Next, click on Create Group and enter a name for your group (e.g., Book Club). After that, you can add other contacts by clicking on Add People and selecting their contact cards.
4) Set up profiles for different email addresses
If you have multiple email addresses and want to keep them all in one place, then you can use Google Contacts to do so. Setting up profiles for each address will allow you to view the contacts associated with it in a separate tab. In addition, you’ll be able to import or export all of your contacts at once rather than individually.
Choose your contact’s photo: If you have photos saved on your phone or computer that correspond with certain people in your contact list, then Google Contacts allows you to set those as their profile pictures.
5) Download your data as CSV file
Google has made it really easy for you to download your data in a variety of formats. Here are 10 things you may not have known that you could do with your contact list. (1) Get the contact’s phone number: If you want someone’s phone number, type their name and then press Ctrl + enter on the keyboard. The person’s email address will appear at the top left and their phone number will appear at the bottom right. (2) Make sure they’re still alive: If there is an email address but no phone number, then that person might be dead because most people would prefer if someone contacted them by email before calling them on the telephone.
