Google is adding a new feature to Gmail where users will able to see detailed information about their Contacts in the Gmail side panel.

“You can now find additional information about people within your organization, your contacts, people who email you in the Gmail side panel,” Google said.

“This feature expands upon the information you can already view when hovering over a person’s name in Gmail. In the side panel, you can learn more about who the person you’re collaborating with is, what team they’re on, and whether you’ve interacted with them before,” Google said.

It is helpful that Workspace admins fully populate the data cross Google Workspace apps to maximize this feature, Google said.
