New improvement of Gmail chat

A quick note – according to the official Gmail blog, in Gmail chat now you can chat with AIM users without a AIM screenname, and you can directly type an AIM screen name to start chatting (screenshot below).

However, Google still doesn’t provide an API for accessing Gmail chats yet, that’s the improvement of Gmail chat I want, because a lot of users has been requesting for the ability to backup Gmail chat records with Gmail Keeper

Now you can store more contacts in Gmail!

Bigger Gmail contacts storage announced

According to the latest Gmail blog post, now you can:

  • Store much more contact items in your Gmail account (from 10K to 25K);
  • Add more notes or custom fields to each contact item.

Well, I myself don’t need that much space for storing my contacts data, but some of you probably need it anyway.

Screenshots below.

gmail contacts now stores upto 25K records!

PS, the future versions of Gmail Keeper will be anĀ all in one backup tool for your Gmail account, Gmail contacts included.
