Gmail now has search filters, and Android users can now turn off personalized search results in the Google App
Users of Gmail for Android will soon be able to apply search filters to help them find specific emails. On mobile devices, the new feature will allow users to quickly and easily filter email search results. On the Gmail app, the search filters should appear below the search box. A name or a specific timeframe can be used as a filter. Users can choose from a list of suggested senders or search for emails from multiple senders when searching for emails by sender. In addition, Google has added new settings to the Google app for Android, allowing users to control the option of personalised search results.
In a blog post, Google announced the addition of an improved search feature to Gmail for Android. Users of Android devices can access this feature by tapping the search icon in the app's search box. Gmail will suggest search terms based on information from users' Gmail Accounts, such as contacts, labels, or messages, to help them find what they're looking for faster. All messages will be included in the results, with the exception of those in spam or trash.
Last year, Gmail for iOS received a dedicated widget update, which matched the new feature. Gmail for Android's improved search feature began rolling out on Monday, September 20 and will be fully operational by the end of October. All Google Workspace customers, as well as G Suite Basic and Business customers, will be able to use it.
In other news, the Google app for Android is getting an update that will allow users to control personalised search results. Users will be able to disable or enable the "personalised search results" option through the app, giving them control over whether Google can use their account data to show personalised results.
