Google has announced an update to how it manages Google Contacts across multiple devices to ensure that they finally syncronise properly.
The ability to mark a contact as important with a yellow star has now been expanded to sync with Android favourites.
The gmail contacts list favourites will now appear in the Android gmail app, so that starring a contact on desktop will star that same person in the Android contacts list, and vice-versa.
The option for favouriting contacts ensures those regularly used names appear more prominently when sending emails from a mobile device, which should make that a little bit easier in future.
