Updates to Contacts and a (slightly) new look for Gmail

You certainly already noticed it. Google has updated the look and feel of Gmail and contacts:

Contacts now works more like the rest of Gmail, so if you know how to use Gmail, now you should automatically feel comfortable in Contacts too. And you'll see a bunch of theĀ features you've requested, including:

  • Keyboard shortcuts (go to Contacts and hit "?" for the full list)
  • Sort by last name (look under "More actions")
  • Custom labels for phone numbers and other fields
  • The ability to undo changes you've just made
  • Automatic saving
  • Structured name fields, so you can adjust titles, suffixes, and other name components
  • A bigger, more prominent notes field
