Google Now Lets You Star And Sync Your Google Contacts To Your Android Favorites

An announcement from Google today lets us know about a wonderful new feature available for Google Contacts. You can now “star” people to your hearts content, and any one of those people or google contacts that you “star” will sync to your Android device’s “favorites” in the contact list. This feature has certainly been a long time coming and were not quite sure why it took this long to show up, but hey we’re not complaining and now that it’s here were much appreciative.

This feature has been available inside Gmail for some time now, on the browser version and on the Android version, with which you can star certain emails from your inbox and it will favorite the contact the email came from. Those emails are than placed into a “starred” category so you can get to them later without having to sift through tons of emails just to find the one you want, but having to sift through tons of emails is something that probably only happens to some people who don’t clear out their inbox often enough, which admittedly is a group I personally fall into most of the time. Since starring a contact will sync it with your Android device, that means that you can also star a contact ON your Android device and it will sync with your desktop via Gmail.
