With these new features, it appears that Google is looking to improve the targeting process to allow users to share content with those in relevant circles.

The auto-complete option now suggests Gmail, device, and Google+ contacts. In addition, with “Suggestions”, it will highlight frequent and/or recent contacts at the top of the sharebox to allow users to quickly add them without repeatedly having to search for them.
