Google adds new features to Gmail


Google, the search giant, has introduced new search features in Gmail, its cloud-based email service. In a post on the official Gmail blog, software engineer Christian Kurmann said that users can search their emails while taking into account file size and exact date. 

“We’re always looking for ways to make it faster and easier for you to find your messages using search in Gmail. So starting today, you can now search emails by size, more flexible date options, exact match and more. This means, for example, to find emails larger than 5MB, you can search for size:5m or larger:5m or to find emails sent over a year ago, older_than:1y,” according to the blog 

Kurmann’s post further continued that these new additions will work in conjunction with other Gmail features intro by Google recently, including new compose box and autocomplete in search. 

A few months ago, the company had also started field trials wherein users logged into their Gmail accounts could search for emails and files from Google Search itself. Currently being tested only on desktop searches, these trials require users to sign up by themselves.
