Search giant Google is rolling out a new feature for its email service Gmail. The new feature is aimed at making it easier for users to find specific emails. The feature is called Search Chips. The company said Search Chips will narrow down the search results, thus making it less painful for users to find emails. Google said the new click will be one-click access. It will appear below the search box. Google explained that users can search for a colleague’s name and then click on the Search Chips under the search box to apply further filters. This will help users to find a specific email.
Google said users will get results based on choices. They will be asked whether to show an attachment email. It will have even an option on the kind of attachment like text, PDF etc. Besides, users will be able to search for emails received within a specific time. They can also filter out results like chats and calendar entries. At present, users can search for emails manually by typing in filters. But the new process takes the difficulty out of the old method. Google announced that the Search Chips feature will be made available to G Suite users first. It will be extended to Gmail accounts soon.
Gmail informed about the feature in a post on GoogleBlog. It noted that Search Chips will help users to cut noise in the inbox and keep the results of searches relevant. The tool can also be used to refine calendar invites. Gmail users were demanding a quicker and intuitive email search option as the current method was slow and delivering quite vague results. But now it seems Google heeded to the complaints and worked to meet the demand. Google launched its email service in 2014. Gmail is today available in 105 different languages. The services of Gmail are free. It offers 15 gigabytes of storage capacity. According to Gmail’s claim, it has over 1.5 billion active users worldwide.
