    If you set up Windows 8.1 Metro Mail with a Hotmail/Outlook.com, Gmail, or Exchange Server account, all the contacts belonging to that account have already been imported into Metro People. With Metro apps the Mail, Calendar and People will all work together

    You are correct. The contacts from Gmail must be configured to be used in the People app via settings in Charms. I'm remembering now.

    Yes, using the metro app the drop-down is not available. When signing into gmail in the browser it is. My previous post asks if the app can be edited to bring up gmail the same as when using the browser.
    Just to make sure > You do have Gmail account added to the Mail app, correct?
