New Personal tab in Google Search will show results from Photos, Gmail, and more
Oftentimes when performing a Google Search, you’ll be shown personal results from Google Photos, Gmail, Calendar, and a variety of other services. Say, for instance, you’re looking up the word dogs. Google Search will comb through your Photos and Gmail accounts and display all the relevant dog photos and emails you may have in those services. It’s a little feature that can really come in handy at times, though these personal results don’t always show up for every search.
Now Google is adding a Personal tab to Search that lets you see results from your Google applications.
Once you perform a Google Search on the web or on your mobile device (unfortunately it’s not available in the Google app for Android), you’ll be able to select the Personal tab from the More dropdown menu. You’ll then be shown all relevant photos, videos, emails, and more from your Google apps relating to that topic. Plus, to give you peace of mind that these things aren’t out there for the world to see, Google will also display a “Only you can see these results” message next to each card.
The addition of a Personal tab will certainly help make searching for calendar events and photos much easier. Unfortunately Google Drive and Keep support doesn’t seem to be live right now, but we’d assume support will be added in the future.
