Google Contacts is giving you a terrific reason to ask your friends for their birthdays

It’s another place to get birthday notifications

Having to wish someone a belated birthday doesn’t feel all that nice, especially when it’s someone you see pretty often if not everyday. In a time when reminders are front and center, there are practically zero excuses for forgetting important birthdays. Google added the Highlights tab to the Contacts app a few months ago with upcoming birthdays showing up within the tab earlier this month. Now, there’s another birthday-related addition coming to Contacts, allowing users to add birthday notifications for each contact.
