Google is making two updates to the search box in Gmail:
- Updated advanced search icon: There’s an updated icon to access advanced search options, and the icon placement has changed (see images below). When you click this icon, you get a visual interface incorporating Gmail’s advanced search operators to help you find specific emails.
- Update to the prompt text for Gmail and Chat users: If you use Gmail and Google Chat, the hint text in the search box wll now say “search all conversations”. If you only use Gmail, there will be no change and the text will still say “search mail”.
There is no update to any functionality with this update, it’s only a user interface update.
Advanced search helps you utilize Gmail’s advanced search operators
- Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains: Extended rollout (potentially longer than 15 days) starting on June 21, 2021. Google expects the update to be fully rolled out by the end of July 2021.
- Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as Google Workspace Basic and Business customers.
