During the course of the small event held in San Francisco today, Google’s Sagar Kamdar, Director of Product Management and Universal Search, took the stage and talked about the idea of including Gmail in Google searches. Kamdar pointed out that email is a natural extension for Google. “Gmail is almost larger than our web corpus and it continues to grow.” he said. Apparently Google is already experimenting with the functionality, and you can even get an early access to the field trial before it goes live.
Gmail in personal search results allows users to find email messages relevant to your search as well as contacts with their previous email. Google said that there’s also an enhanced flight tracking feature that basically allows you to get information and statuses for your flights. The trial is only available for users with Gmail accounts. If you’re interested, you can try it out here.
