New Google Contacts and Hangouts Meet Features

Google Contacts

Google is launching a new version of Google Contacts in G Suite at Boise State.

Over the next few days, students, faculty and staff will see a prompt within Gmail offering to try the new Contacts before the update becomes permanent in January 2019.

The new Google Contacts has a refreshed look to better match the look of Gmail. It also has the ability to delegate management of your contacts to someone else, and offers better management of duplicate contacts.

Visit Google’s support site for additional information about Contacts.

Hangouts Meet

You can now add people to a meeting currently in progress.

When you’re in a meeting using Google Hangouts Meet, you’ll see “Add people” link at the top of the participant list. Select to invite users to join by email or by phone.
