Google is rolling out a new feature for Gmail on Android users that will allow them to apply search filters to find specific emails or pieces of information that they are looking for. The search filters should appear below the search box on the Gmail app. The filter can be a name or a specific timeframe. Additionally, the Google app has also received a new feature that shows a new preference to control “Personal results.” This feature was first spotted by 9to5Google.
Google explained in a blog post that the “search filters” in Gmail can be used independently or post-search, so it will be a bit easier to choose filtering options from the drop-down lists. For example, you can type a query and further narrow results by selecting search filters like from a colleague’s name, or a specific timeframe. You can choose from a list of suggested senders or search for emails from multiple senders.
The feature will take a few weeks to reach all the users. It started rolling out on Monday, September 20 and will be fully live by the end of October. It will be available to all Google Workspace customers, G Suite Basic, and Business customers.

In another development, the Google app has also received an update, which allows users to control personalised results on Search. Now it will be possible to disable or enable the “personalised search results” feature, which basically takes information from one’s Google account to show as personalised results. The features of this option include:
  1. Auto-complete predictions that include search predictions based on search history.
  2. Personal answers like location, reminders, and reservations.
  3. Recommendations based on Google activity like what to watch, where to travel, where to eat etc.
If a user chooses to disable this feature, then Google won’t show personalised search results based on the above-listed features. You can disable the personalised search result option by going to Settings > Personal Results on the Google app homepage.
