Google has announced an update for Google contacts, allowing you star contacts and sync them with your Android Favorites. Starred contacts will be immediately be placed into a 'Starred' group for quick and easy look-up.
Google says that the feature is similar to starring important messages in your inbox. All your Starred contacts will stay in sync with your Android Favorites. That means if your Star a contact on your desktop it will be automatically undated on your Android device and vice versa. The feature can be very useful as it allows users to manage contacts from anywhere. Google has given users an option whether they want to use the new Star system or not. The feature will be rolled out slowly over the next week.
Google has been adding a host of new features to some of its services including the new ability to email anyone on G as well as new features added to Chrome V32 which was released a few days back.
The new features will allow users to send emails to their Google friends. Emails sent from people in your Google Circles will land in your Gmail Primary Inbox category, while those from strangers will come under the Social heading if you have enabled the same. The Google Chrome V32 update lets you track the app playing sound or video. The tab playing sound will display a small speaker icon, making it easier to identify. The Chrome 32 beta update has been rolled for Windows, Mac, and PC.
