Why are all Android contacts synced with the Google cloud, but the "Me" entry is always offline? 


Also, I want to use the "OK Google" command "send an email to me/myself", but I want it to send it to my work email address. It only seems to want to send it to the email of the account which android is logged in with. I gather that command only looks at the currently used account and doesn't look up my address in contacts (like it does when I tell it to send an email to someone other than me), because when OK Google shows the email it has a capital in it which I didn't put in the Me contacts entry. Is there any way to change this?

gzt: Create a "Work Me"?


Yeah, that's what I've done, but I wish it could just ask "home or work" like it does for everyone other than me.
