Google+ Connections coming to Gmail

Google on Thursday announced the integration of Google+ connections with Gmail, allowing users to email contacts on the service, even when they've not exchanged email address. The feature comes handy when you are caught halfway into sending that important message and realize that the Google+ user is not on your contact list.

The feature auto-suggests Google+ connections when a Gmail user is typing in recipients email, and avails you the ease to email any of your Google+ contacts without knowing their email address.

It comes as an extension of some earlier improvements that keep Gmail contacts automatically up-to-date using Google+, Gmail will suggest your Google+ connections as recipients when you are composing a new email.

The feature will be rolling out over the coming days to all Gmail users who have Google+ profiles, and a notification will be sent to users with a link to the setting when available.
