Previously, Gmail used to have a limit of 10,000 contacts. This was enough for most of us, particularly after Google enabled users to turn off automatic inclusion of email addresses of people they email to, to Gmail’s contacts which was the primary reason for some people hitting the 10,000 contact limit. But starting today, Google has increased the limit for all Gmail users, including all those who use Google Apps, to 25,000 contacts
Further more, the contact information for each individual contacts that a user can keep has been increased from 32 KB to 128 KB, allowing users to keep lots of notes on each contact. That’s a whopping 3 GB of contact information alone. Google hopes this will help address the unusual wants of a few Gmail users, for at least some time to come.
