Google is rolling out a new feature for Gmail users. The feature allows users to filter emails and search results to help find the specific email or information they are looking for. The Google app has also received a new feature and now displays a new preference to control “personal results”.
The “search filters” in Gmail can be used independently or after searching, so it will be a bit easier to choose the filter options from the drop-down lists. For example, you can enter a query and further refine the results by selecting search filters such as a colleague’s name or a specific time period.
If you search for emails by sender, you will be able to choose from a list of suggested senders or search for emails from multiple senders. The company announced the addition of this feature via a blog post.
The feature is being rolled out to Android Gmail users. It will take a few weeks to reach all users. Google suggests that all users receive it before the end of October. It will be available to all Google Workspace, G Suite Basic, and Business customers.
In addition, the Google app has also received an update, which allows users to control personalized search results. Users will now be able to disable or enable the “personalized search results” feature, which essentially takes information from their Google account and displays them as personalized results.
When you enable this feature, Google displays personalized search results using these services:
# Auto-complete predictions that include search predictions based on search history.
# Personal responses like location, reminders and reservations.
#Recommendations based on Google activity like what to watch, where to travel, where to eat, etc.
If a user chooses to turn off this feature, Google will not display personalized search results based on the features listed above. You can turn off the custom search result option by going to Settings> Personal Results on the Google app home page. The feature was first spotted by 9to5Google.
