Google Will Now Let You Search Inside Your Apps From The Search Bar

Android: Yesterday, Google announced a new search mode in Android that allows you to look inside your apps for things like emails, to-do lists and notes without having to dive into each app individually.

The new feature is rolling out to the Google app on Android phones. When you look for something in the search bar on your home screen, you’ll now see “In Apps” as a filter option alongside the usual things like Videos, Books and News. At the top of the screen, you’ll see a list of apps you have installed that match your query. Below that, you’ll find information indexed in those apps.

So, for example, if you need to find an email from your boss, you can search their name and scroll through the results in Google search, rather than having to open Gmail. This is particularly handy if you have messages or notes spread across multiple apps. This feature is currently rolling out to Android users now.
