In a Wednesday announcement, Google revealed that most of the US users of the Google Search service will henceforth be able to retrieve useful information from their other Google services by either typing of verbally asking conversational questions.
According to the Google announcement, it will soon be giving most of the US users of its search service the ability retrieve handy details from Gmail, Calendar, and other services. For retrieving the details, Google Search users will have to type or speak conversational questions like "Is my flight on time?" or "When will my Amazon order arrive?" or "Show me my purchases."
The service will work in such a way that when Google Search users search their Gmail or Google Calendar for their flight number or their FedEx package number in Google. com, they can get personalized answers by hitting Enter. The answers will appear at the top of the search results page.
Initially, the service will work only for five categories of information: flight reservations, hotel bookings, online purchases, calendar events and photos. However, Google plans to add more categories to the list later.
For answering the conversational questions typed or voiced by the Google Search users, Google will scan the users' inbox. The service will be available to most US users of the Google Search app on Apple's iOS devices or Android-based smartphones and tablets, as well as PCs running the Google Chrome browser.
