Google today announced a change to Gmail that will improve users' ability to reach others. Gmail users will now be able to send emails to people they've added to their Google+ circles even if they don't have the actual email address. Gmail will auto-suggest Google+ contacts when users create new email messages. On the flip side, this means people who've circled you on Google+ will be able to email you directly even if you've never given them your email address. Google is baking in some privacy controls, however, and will allow Gmail and Google+ users to opt out of this auto-suggest feature. The change is being rolled out to all Gmail and Google+ users over the next few days. Users will receive an email explaining the new feature with a link to the appropriate settings tools.
