Google regularly keeps updating Search, which is one of its most widely used services. Since last year the company had been running a field trial of Gmail integration in Search, which would result in personalized search results being shown to users. Starting today the internet search giant is flipping on personalized results from Gmail, Google Calendar and Google+ in Google Search. Unless users opt-out, personalized results will now be shown by default to all those who are signed in to their Google account while conducting a web search through the company’s world famous search engine.
Apart from displaying travel documents and appointments, results will also include reservations, flight status, package deliveries as well as receipts from items purchased online. These results can easily be obtained by making a natural language query either by voice or through the keyboard. For example, to find out what your schedule is for the next day, simply search for “what’s my schedule tomorrow,” using any of the two mediums and a personalized card will display appointments saved in Google Calendar. Initially personalized search will only be available to English language users based in the U.S. through desktop, smartphones and tablets. No word as yet when this feature will be rolled out across the board.
