You can now search the content of your email attachments with Gmail
You’re either going to love or hate this. Google has just updated Gmail’s search and added one very interesting new feature.
Gmail search previously was only able to search for the title of an attachment or content from the email itself. If you’ve got an attachment with contents that you know of but are unsure of the title, then this is a very nice addition. This will make it a lot easier to find the threads you’re looking for.
If you’ve got DOC, PDF or PPT file attachments then Gmail will be able to sort through the insides and find what you’re looking for. If you test it now you may run into a few glitches as El Goog is still in the process of indexing all of these points.
