Google Video Contact Manager

Google Video has a new feature that lets you send a link to a video much more easily. Google Video already had a way to share videos, but you had to type emails and the autocomplete was barely usable.

Now you can see all your contacts or just the most contacted, you can search for a contact and even get a picture for contacts that use Gmail and lets you see it.

The new contact manager is not yet available from Google Video's interface, but you can see it if you go to a Google Video (like this one) and type:

javascript:handlePickerClick(0);void(0);

in the address bar. Now press enter and a new window will open. You need to be logged in with your Gmail account.


While the new feature is just a way to build a list of email addresses, it's part of a wider initiative that focuses on improving how you access and manage your contacts on Google properties.
