Google is updating Contacts to provide more information about users who work in our same organization.
In this way, you will have all the information you need about your co-workers or the rest of the users in your organization.
Google Contacts adds more information about your coworkers
Although Contacts allows us to combine all the information we have about our contacts and makes it easier to manage them, Google wants to go a little further with its proposal.
The idea is that the application also contains information that improves work dynamics. For example, if you are working remotely with an international work team, you will find that the profile of each of the colleagues scheduled in the application shows their local time.
So if you plan to send an email, chat or even organize a video conference, you can see this information in the profile of your colleagues in Contacts. On the other hand, if the user has enabled the function that allows them to know if they are working hours or not, it will also be reflected in their Contacts profile.
Other interesting information that you will find has to do with your file history with your contact. In the Contacts user tab you will see a list of files shared through Google Drive, as well as other data of interest based on the activity of the organization.
As you can see in the image, all the contact information is organized into different sections with the basic data, related people, recent interactions, shared files, among other information. Some data is added manually, and some is automatically added with the rest of the contact information.
One detail to keep in mind is that this dynamic will only be implemented with those contacts that are part of our organization. It is an option that is available for Google Workspace, G Suite Basic and Business users.
