Have you ever sat back and wished you could have a second chance? Maybe you’ve sent an email that you wish you hadn’t or deleted something and then decided you actually needed it. Well, the guys over at Google know all about the desire to have a simple do-over and they’ve decided to share it with Gmail users.
As you may already know, Gmail actually lets you unsend a message, which is the epitome of do-overs. But Google has taken it even further by letting us have a second chance with our contact list as well. Wondering exactly what we’re talking about?
The newest feature of Gmail involves Google Contacts. Now, it is possible for you to revert your contact list and get rid of any mistakes you might have made. The kicker is that you have just about 30 days to fix your list, if you need to. So, why would this new feature come in handy?
Let’s say that you’ve deleted a bunch of your contacts or even wiped the contact data from your contact list. This could happen while syncing a mobile device. All you need to actually do is visit the Contact Section and find the “Restore contacts” option. (It’s in the “More actions” menu, in case you can’t find it). Just select the time that you would like to revert to. It’s a lot like your computer’s restore function.
It is important to understand that if you restore your contacts then they will return to the state they were in at the time selected. But, if you have added contacts since then, they will be deleted.
