Your company’s Google Workspace LDAP Directory contains the names, email addresses, phone numbers, and other information of the employees of your organization. That directory (aka Global Address List) is accessible in Google Contacts when you access it through your computer.
However, Google Contacts does not automatically synchronize the company directory contacts with mobile phones. As a result, users cannot immediately send a message through SMS, WhatsApp, or other mobile messaging apps to newly added organization members from your Google Workspace Directory. Hence, time can be wasted in searching the welcome email or asking around for the new co-worker’s contact details.
Shared Contacts for Gmail® solves this problem. With its instant synchronization feature, your Google Workspace LDAP Directory contacts will be synchronized with your mobile phones, even offline.
