Google Contacts Gets Integrated Into Search

Posted Jun 28, 2013

Google Contacts is a service where you can sync contacts from your mobile devices and Gmail.  Now Google is going to make it easier to find contacts through Google Search itself.  You will need to sign up for the Google Search field trial on Google’s website to make the service work.

“If you?re in the Google Search field trial (, you can now look up your Gmail contacts directly from Search. Want quick directions to your friend Brittney’s house while on the move? You can use Voice Search to ask ‘What?s Brittney’s address?’ and Google will show you the address, with turn-by-turn directions in one tap on your phone. If you need quick access to your friend Joanna’s phone number, just say “Joanna’s phone number” and it’s there; with one tap you can call her. Join the field trial at and let us know what you think,” said Google on their Google+ profile.

This feature currently works on Gmail contacts.  Support will be added to Google+ profiles in the near future.
