Google Inbox search gets even smarter
Google’s awesome Inbox app just got a heck of a lot more useful for those who leave all the important information they’ll need later inside their emails.
Starting today, Inbox can seek out addresses, contact information, bills, directions, bookings, package tracking numbers and more effectively than any other mail app.
With the latest Inbox update installed on your device, searching for certain snippets of information will provide you with Google Now-like “quick answer” cards at the top of your search results. These cards cleverly provide you with the info you’re looking for in an instant.
If you need more, the “top results” section beneath the quick answers is where you’ll find related emails, ordered by date, “but chances are you won’t have to look here often,” Google promises.

Like all Google app updates, the latest version of Inbox will rollout in phases on Android, so don’t worry if you don’t get it today. It’s also unclear how long iOS users will have to wait for this feature, but we expect to see it soon.
