The Contacts app is your G Suite address book, where you can store all kinds of useful (and even useless) information about your ever-growing network of colleagues, clients, friends, family, acquaintances, high school classmates, and anyone else who falls within the borders of your social circle. You can use Contacts to store mundane information such as phone numbers and email addresses, but with its over 30 predefined fields available, you can preserve the minutiae of other people's lives: their birthdays and anniversaries, the names of their spouses and children, their nicknames, and even their web page addresses.
