Google introduced new search features in Gmail.

gmailGiant search engine, Google has introduced latest 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.

According to the blog, “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.”

Kurmann’s further posted that these latest additions will work in conjunction with other Gmail features intro by Google lately comprising new compose box and auto complete in search.

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