Gmail Now Lets You Undelete Your Past Contact Deletion Mistakes

Google wants you to get rid of your contacts at will, then revive them as you see fit with a new contacts restoration option that allows users to restore Gmail contacts for up to 30 days after removing them.

Had a fight with a friend? Accidentally deleted a business contact? The program allows users to specify a time period for contact deletions to be restored, for example, you can restore contacts you accidentally deleted yesterday, a week ago or 3 weeks ago, simply choose how far back to restore all delete contacts in a given time period, such as all deleted contacts over the last 1 day, 3 hours and 15 minutes ago.

Just think of the program as a “Windows system restore” for delete contacts.”

In true Google fashion, the tweak to their system is minimal, ensuring it won’t bother users who have no need for the option, while still providing a valuable service to those who need it.
