Now, Google brings your Gmail messages to search results
London: Google has started to try a new search feature, which would enable its search engine results to integrate information from users` Gmail accounts.
Amit Singhal, Google’s search chief, said that the move was a “baby step towards pre-emptive search” and an example of search engines “getting to know people better”.
“Sometimes the best answer to your question isn’t available on the public web--it may be contained somewhere else, such as in your email,” the Telegraph quoted Singhal, as saying.
“We think you shouldn’t have to be your own mini-search engine to find the most useful information--it should just work,” he added.
According to the paper, Gmail results will appear on the right hand side of the search results page and will only be available to the single user whose email account is being included in the results.
Another practical use for the addition of Gmail to search is if a person wants to search for “my flights”, this new feature will allow Google to surface a specific result which says: “upcoming flights from your Gmail” and show the latest timetable.
Singhal said that Google had developed a totally secure and private line; therefore, there was no risk of a person’s emails from Gmail, ever being seen in anyone else’s search results.
