Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) has announced some new improvements to Gmail search. The Gmail Search now comes with better predictions for autocomplete, based on your past searches and also displays thumbnails so that you can get a better idea of who you’re searching for.

The autocomplete and suggestions form a huge part of Google’s search and has been in use for a while now. So far the updated function works great as it shows results based on trends that are going on, combined with things you have searched for in the past.


As we know, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is the master in search and this new improvement is definitely a welcome addition. Gmail will also display contact thumbnails so that it is easier for users to know which exact person they are searching for. For example; let’s say you have two contacts named Arnold, with the thumbnails, you’ll be able to identify the Arnold that exactly you are looking for.

If you’ve searched your email for “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” or other lengthy phrases, it just got easier to find what you’re looking for. Autocomplete predictions in Gmail may now include your past Gmail searches.

Past searches as well as the new contact thumbnails shown below are rolling out to all Gmail users globally, including Google Apps for Business customers, over the next few days.

The last update that Gmail made was for the new Compose window that definitely makes life easy because we can start composting a mail from any screen. The Android version of the app was also updated to include new action buttons like reply, archive or delete the mail, without even having to open the mail.

Over time, Gmail has received many updates which make it the best email app. With Gmail, it’s not just about sending and receiving mails anymore, but it’s also about finding the right email, at the right time, and not to mention about the super useful threaded messages which mean less email clutter.
