Gmail On Android Gets Search Filters: All Details Here


New Delhi: Gmail will now allow its android users to apply search filters to help users find specific emails. This new feature allows users to quickly and easily filter email search results on their mobile devices. The search filter appears below the search box in the Gmail app. You can specify a name or a specific time frame for the filter. When searching for emails by sender, users can choose from a list of suggested senders or search for emails from multiple senders. In addition, the internet giant has added new settings to the Google app on Android. This gives you control over the options for personalized search results.

Google announced the addition of the improved search feature on Gmail for Android through a blog post. Android device users can use this feature by tapping the search icon in the search box on the app. To search faster, Gmail will suggest search terms based on the information from users’ Gmail Accounts like contacts, labels, or messages. The results will include all messages except those in spam or trash.

Notably, the new feature matches the dedicated widget update Gmail for iOS received last year. The improved search feature for Gmail for Android started rolling out on Monday, September 20, and will be fully live by the end of October. It will be available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers.

Moreover, the Google app for Android is also receiving an update to control personalised results on Search. It will allow users to disable or enable the ‘personalised search results’ option via the app, which gives them control over whether Google can use their account data to show personalised results. The features of this option include:

  • Auto-complete predictions that include search predictions based on search history.
  • Personal answers like location, reminders, and reservations.
  • Recommendations based on Google activity like what to watch, where to travel, where to eat etc.
