Google brings unified search to Google Calendar and Google Drive on the Web

Gmail users have been able to search for content from across Google’s various products for a while already, meaning they could not only dig out emails with a few carefully chosen keywords, but calendar events, documents, and web content.

This feature is now available from within Google Calendar and Google Drive too, as reported by the Google Operating System blog, making it easier to find files and other content without having to manually open a new tab. You just enter a search term, and relevant files start showing up as you type. This works within the individual apps that make up Google Drive too, including Docs and Sheets.

Google Drive shows Google Calendar events and results from Gmail. If there are no Google Drive results, you’ll see this message: “there are no recent records that match your search”.

Similar results are included in the standalone web apps for Google Docs, Sheets and Slides.
