How to Add a New Email Address to Your Gmail Contacts

Gmail is still one of the familiar and important emails for many people, it is used in daily work or exchanging information with people. In the contacts list on Gmail, with friends who have saved them, the contact at later will be simpler. We just need to enter the first few characters in their email account to choose to send. However, for those who first send you a letter or are not on the email address list, sending email later will be more difficult.

You will need time to find the person who sent you the message. Or you may not know who the email is coming from, because it is not in your saved contacts and could result in the wrong email. The best way is to add those email addresses to your Gmail contacts list. In the article below, you will learn how to add a new email address to your Gmail contacts in two different ways.
