How to access what's new:
To merge multiple contacts, go to the Gmail contact manager, select the contacts you want to merge and click the 'Merge these contacts...' link. Note: autocomplete may show email addresses from merged contacts in an unexpected order, and this issue is being resolved.
To remove contacts from 'My Contacts' (which can be synced to your mobile device with Google Sync) go to the Gmail contact manager, select a contact, click the 'Groups' button and choose the 'Remove from...My Contacts' option.
To search across all contact fields, go to the Gmail contact manager and enter your search term in the search box. You can search on phone numbers, postal addresses, notes and more.
