Google has made it easier to manage your Gmail contacts with a stand-alone Google Contacts App, rather than having it as just one of the many options on Gmail. The Contacts App comes with a host of features to give you better control over your contacts.

The Google “Contacts” App is synced with gmail and can be used to access the contacts for all your gmail ids or anyone gmail id.
It also gives you a search bar to easily find a particular contact. You can also find and merge duplicate contacts, that got saved or imported twice. This can be especially useful if you have a long list of contacts.
What’s more this app also gives you the functionality to export the contacts into Google CSV file or Outlook CSV or even in Vcard format (for iOS contacts).
You also get an option to import contacts into your Google contacts from any CSV or vCard file.
You can even print the complete list of contacts with this App.
The Google Contacts App also gives you options to create a group of contacts like friends, family, office colleagues etc. To create a group of contacts, you need to use the “Label” option. Create a new label (which acts as a Group). Select and drag the required contacts to this Label and you will have a group of contacts.
You can even share a Gmail contact or a Group of contacts which will be shared as a vcf file using Whatsapp or Gmail.
