Gmail has just added a bunch of new features, a slightly new look and full integration of Google Contacts in Gmail.

An overhauled version of Google Contacts have been added to Gmail today to make it much easier to sort and manage your contacts from within Gmail.

This is not all, Google has also introduced a bunch of new features which Gmail users have been requesting for a long time!

  • 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

All these new features will be rolled out, starting today! So hopefully, every Gmail user should have them by the end of this week.

Google Apps users might have to wait a bit till Google works on getting these new features to Apps users, soon.
