Adding a new contact to Gmail contacts list

Gmail uses Google Contacts as its primary address book, from which you can add the recipient's contacts to any new email.

Google Contacts can be used not only in Gmail, but also in the phone book on Android mobile phones and other Google services. For example, if you set a person's date of birth in contacts, the Google Calendar (which is by default in Google Account together with Gmail mail) will automatically add an event that will remind you of the birthday of a new contact in advance. And if the contact you're adding already has a Google account with a photo in his or her profile, it'll automatically show up and make it easier to understand who's writing to you.

  1. In the upper right corner, click the icon in the Google widget panel.
  2. Then click on the icon Contacts.
    Gmail - 'Contacts' button
  3. On the contacts page on the top left, click the Create contact button in the top left corner.
  4. In the window that opens, enter the necessary information about the person (name, workplace, email address, phone number, photo, etc.).
    Gmail - 'Create new contact' menu
  5. Press the Save button.

The new contact is created!
Now, if we want to write an email to a new contact, his email address will appear in the field To (when using the autocomplete feature).
Gmail - select contact from the list
