Google has been working toward merging its products together for a more unified experience and it appears that Google Contacts is next in line.

This week, the company announced that it will begin displaying address book information — that you’ve stored — on your friends’ Google+ profiles. Unlike Facebook, which lets members display contact information to whomever they choose, Google noted that this information is not public and will only be visible to you.

Google Contacts is a way to store and organize contact information about the people you communicate with. It integrates with all Google Apps, such as Gmail, Docs, and so on.

Google Contact information can be accessed by clicking the About tab on your friend’s Google+ profile. Just look for the new section titled “Details from Google Contacts.”

This is a pretty convenient update for anyone that utilizes both products, especially because it doesn’t require any work from you — results are populated directly from your Google Contacts account. However, you might want to go through your contacts just to make sure that all the information is up to date.
