Google makes searching for your own content easier with Personal Tab

Google logoGoogle runs a wide variety of services that many people use on a daily basis, services like Google Drive, Docs, Gmail, YouTube, Photos, to name a few. Users normally have a significant amount of data stored across these services and Google is now making it easier for them to search for their content using Google Search. It has added a new Personal tab to Google search for precisely this purpose.

Google Search already shows a combination of personalized and personal results to users. The new tab will enable users to quickly make all public results disappear so that they can search through all of the content that they have stored across Googles services to find whatever it is theyre looking for.

The tab has been placed in the same location as the News, Images, and Shopping tabs. It can be found at the top of the results page behind the More menu. Once selected, it automatically narrows down the search query to the users personal content only.

They will then see results that include Gmail messages, calendar events, and more from their signed-in accounts. Those who are searching for images can dig deeper in Google Photos or immediately open an image result as and when required.

Googles Personal tab is now live for most users on the web and mobile versions of Google Search. It remains to be seen when it will go live for the Android and iOS apps.
