How to Share Labels in Google Contacts and Get Organized?

How to Make the Most Out of Your Contact Labels

Sharing contacts in the Google ecosystem is one of the most demanded features. And yet, it’s not possible only with Google Contacts. The use cases are straightforward: teachers may need to email all parents of a specific class quickly. A company may need to want to collaborate around particular contacts with their board members. 

Labels are the Google Word for tags. Labels tell Google that your contacts belong to one group. You can look at labels also as contact groups, but don’t confuse it with Google Groups, which is somewhat similar.

Difference of Contact labels and Google Groups

Contact labels are tags that you assign to your contacts that indicate they belong to the same thing. However, you cannot email several contacts at once based on their label or invite them to a meeting. These are things that require a Google Group. Groups are groups to which contacts are added that can be asked to meetings and receive shared files.

A label is a group of contacts without additional features in some way. But how can you then share your google contacts?
