New Labs Experiment for Gmail: Apps Search

Gmail Labs, the place where Google software engineers post new experimental features they think will make the email client better, welcomed a new experiment this week. Called Apps Search, this new experiment is meant to help you find what you are looking for - easily and fast.

Without the Apps Search experiment your searching options in Gmail are limited. You can enter a query, then Search Mail or Search the web. With the Apps Search experiment, Gmail’s search capabilities are extended to cover Google Docs and Sites.

“Once you enable [Apps Search] from the Gmail Labs tab under Settings, the “Search Mail” button in Gmail will say “Search Mail and Docs” instead, and your search results will include matching documents and sites in addition to email messages. You may notice that mail results show up just as fast as before while non-mail results may take a tiny bit longer. That way, if you’re just looking for an email, having this lab enabled won’t slow you down,” explained Software Engineer,

If you would like to turn on Apps Search, here is what you have to do (a simple 3-step process):

1. - Go to Gmail (click here – a new tab will open), enter your login credentials and click Sign in. If you are already signed into your Google account, click this link and you can just skip step 2 in this tutorial.
2. - In the top right corner of the screen, right next to your user name you should be able to see Settings; click it. Now locate Labs and click it as well.
3. - Scroll down until you find a Labs experiment called Apps Search. Select Enable, then click Save Changes (there’s a Save Changes button at the top of the experiments list and at the bottom as well) and you’re done.
