What Google does with this information
Google uses this information to help other users of Google products (like Hangouts, Gmail, and Maps) learn more about you and easily get in touch. For example, when you're having a conversation with someone on the Gmail or Hangouts app, they can click or touch your display photo, which shows the contact details you've decided to share.
