New Search Features Hit Gmail to Ease Travel Disorganization

We realize that there are many flavors of web-based email from which to choose, and each and every one of them has their plusses and minuses. For those preferring to store and send travel tidbits—and kitty pictures—through Gmail, it looks like things are getting a little bit of an update.
Everyone knows that Google is darn good at searching for stuff, and if you’ve used Gmail before it’s no surprise that searching your inbox is part of its functionality. However, looking through certain attachments and other documents wasn’t really an option, but that’s changing for the better. The latest update from the Google family is great for travelers and receipt hoarders, as certain items are now search-friendly.
Things like receipts, hotel stuff, restaurant reservations, and other event related details can all be yours for the searching. The feature is still in limited release, so you’ll have to sign up—go ahead and do so right here. After that it’s not too hard to search for something like “my hotel reservation,” and up pops your trip to Hawaii next week—at least that’s what we wish came up after the search.
So yeah—hit up the new features in your Gmail account and search away. Your hotel reservations will thank you later.
