    How often does the People Contact sync with google contact

    I've sync'd my google contacts with the people contacts in 8.1. On initial setup everything transferred ok. To test the link I then added a new contact in google to see if it would sync with the people contacts. So far it hasn't. How often does the people app update with google?

    Finding the same problem here, made some changes to Google contacts and still hasn't been captured by the People app days later although it says it syncs each time I've opened it.

    To be honest, what I thought would be a very useful app when I first heard about it has become nearly unused by me because of things like this or the inability to add a birthday directly in the app to a contact. Just feels half done and forgotten by MS at this point.
