Contacts are crucial for individuals and organizations alike. Having a good contact management tool is a must. When many ways of consuming contacts exist, having contacts centralized is necessary. Contact management becomes more centralized via Google Contacts. Sharing contacts becomes an essential task in everyone’s life. In this article, we share some ways by which you can share Google Contacts.
The simplest way to access Google contacts is by navigating to contacts.google.com. Viewing from the desktop it will show you all the contacts for the associated Google account. There are options to view labels, create new labels, import, export, print and view ‘other contacts. Other contacts are all the contacts automatically created via your inbox.
For example, you received an email from a new Adobe subscription you have signed up for. Contact will be added for Adobe in other contacts. At the top, you can also see frequently contacted contacts as well as recommendations to merge and fix contacts (i.e. there are duplicates). Selecting a contact (in the browser) opens the contact details modal including contact details, recent interactions (email) and Google Maps (in case there are any associated details with contact and phone number).
You cannot share a contact from a web app though it is possible from mobile.
