Google has released a bunch of updates on their Google Apps platform.
A couple of features that have been available to regular Google Account users are now available on Google Apps:
– Connected profiles. If your contact has a Google profile, their contact entry will be updated with the profile information they’ve shared with you, including phone numbers, email addresses and more. If they change it in the future, you’ll get those updates automatically. (This has worked for profiles internal to the domain for quite some time, but now we’ve enabled it for profiles external to the domain as well.)
– Circles in Contacts. If you are a Google+ user, your circles will appear in your contact list, making it easier for you to view the contact information for all of the members of a circle in one place
This should make it easier for the users of Google Apps to communicate with folks in their Google Circles.
