Google Drive now has a new feature that allows users to adjust their search parameters and find files on the site more quickly. The new tool, dubbed Search Chips, works similarly to the Gmail search filters that were introduced in September of this year, allowing users to quickly and efficiently filter search results on Google Drive. Users can pick from a list of suggested filters while looking for files. The beta version of Google’s new functionality is presently accessible.
In a blog post, Google announced the launch of the expanded search capability to Google Drive. When users input a query, a series of buttons will show above the results, according to the most recent update. You may use these interactive filters to find the precise file you’re looking for and to collect stuff. Google Drive will propose search phrases based on the information provided by users to help you find what you’re looking for fast. Filters such as file type, individuals, location, latest changed date, tasks, file titles, and more may be used to order the search results. It’s possible to combine many filters.
As previously said, the search chip functionality is now in testing. Users that are interested in using this feature can fill out a Google Form. All Google Workspace clients, including G Suite Basic and Business, will be able to use it. Gmail for Android added search filters in September to make it easier for users to discover specific emails. Users may filter email search results quickly and simply on their mobile devices using this capability.
A time frame can be assigned to the filter. Users can pick from a list of suggested senders or search for e-mail messages from several senders when looking for e-mail messages by sender.
Gmail will propose search terms like labels, messages, and contacts to help you narrow down your results. Except for those in spam or trash, the results will include all messages. The search filter in Gmail for Android is exclusively available to Google Workspace and G Suite Basic and Business clients, similar to the functionality of search chips in Google
