Google adds update to Gmail search filter and personal settings for Android users

Google is continuously updating Google Workspace regularly, and this time, Gmail for Android is getting an improved search feature. Previously we saw the addition of Chat and Spaces along with the change in the UI as well. This time, Google is adding a search filter, which can be used by tapping the search box and will appear just below it. The aim is to allow users to quickly and easily filter email search results on their mobile devices. It will help you find a specific email or information based on the filter selected from the drop-down list. It will either consist of the name of the sender or the timeframe of receiving the email. You can select a single sender or multiple senders at a time.
