Google Contacts Web App Now Shows Verified Information From Maps

The Google Contacts web app, first introduced over a year ago, is rolling out new a feature despite still being in preview mode. The new feature will list verified business information from Google Maps directly in a contact.

If you have previously added information about a business to the Google Contacts web app, such as a phone number, the contact will be populated with verified information about that businesses from its listing in Google Maps. In addition, Contacts will pull in the the business’s profile information as well as link to open the listing directly in Maps.

If you have previously added data to the Google Contact Web App then your information will not be overridden, rather the two sets of data will show up simultaneously. All information from Google Maps will be displays below the information you have added manually.

This is one of the first new features added to Google Contacts since the preview rolled out. If you’re still on the old version of Contact you can activate the new one by clicking on “Try Contact Preview” in the left toolbar.

A new design for Google Contact is available now, with the Maps integration set to roll out to all users in the coming days.
