The internet giant Google has recently updated it's email service, Gmail and added some new features to it. Gmail now lets it's users to search their email via the size of the files attached and more flexible date options.
Mentioning about the changes, blog post by a Google software engineer, Christian Kurmann said, " We're always looking for ways to make it faster and easier for you to find your messages using search in Gmail. So starting today, you can now search emails by size, more flexible date options, exact match and more.
This means, for example, to find emails larger than 5MB, you can search for size:5m or larger:5m or to find emails sent over a year ago, older_than:1y."
The new features come soon after the new window to compose email was introduced by Google last month. In addition to the new pop-up compose window, Gmail also added the ability to let users check their emails while typing, and also, compose two different messages simultaneously.
In an interview with GMA news, Gmail product manager Phil Sharp said that the new features which have been added to Google's email service, would enable the users to use Gmail more efficiently as it would make it faster and easier to use.
"The new compose is designed to let you focus on what's important: your message. The controls are still there when you need them but get out of the way when you don’t. We’ve even added some new features like the ability to easily insert inline images and have more to come," he said.
