Gmail wants to make life easier for its users online. At least, that’s what its latest update, announced last Thursday (20), shows. Thanks to it, both Google Chat and the email service in its web and mobile versions (Android and iOS) will receive improvements in their search bar and in the results found.
In all, three enhancements were announced by the Google Workspace team, starting with the smart use of the platform’s search history.
Now, Gmail itself will help the user during their search, suggesting terms based on previous queries on the service. This means that when you start typing a word in the search bar, you will be able to see suggestions made by the platform based on everything the person has already searched for.
The novelty can be interesting for those who repeatedly need to retrieve emails or conversations about a certain topic. After all, your own query history will streamline this process.
Already released for Android, the enhancement should arrive for iOS by the end of October.
Another improvement announced by the platform was the scope of search results – an update already available in the web version of the service.
Thanks to it, unlike before, Gmail will no longer simply respond that “no messages matched your search” when a term is not found.
Now, even if the word does not appear in any e-mail or service file, the system will be able to make a list of conversations that have words related to it.
In these cases, the user will be informed that the exact term was not found, but he will be able to see other emails that may match what he is looking for.
Search can be refined by bookmarks
In addition to the above news, Gmail will also allow users to refine their search to bring results more focused on what they are looking for.
This means that, when doing a search, the person can do it directly in one of the service’s bookmarks, so that the results found are restricted only to emails that have that tag.
Now available for Android and iOS, the feature has everything to make life easier for those who need to search for a specific message and which, in a comprehensive search, would bring up several other matches.
