Google Expands Gmail In Search Results With My Orders, My Events & My Reservations

google-g-logo-2012In August, Google introduced a field test that brings Gmail content in your search results. So if you searched for [my flights] and you had a flight confirmation email in your Gmail account, Google would show you upcoming flights.

This is still an opt in field test available to a limited number of US users but Google has announced they have expanded it to cover searches for purchases/orders, event registrations, and hotel reservations.

Google said, “you can now search for [my purchases] to see a list of recent online purchases from select merchants and track the packages to see if they’ve arrived yet.” In addition Google said you “can also quickly check your holiday travel plans by searching for [my hotel reservation] or [my restaurant reservations] if you booked through OpenTable, and search for [my events] to easily see information from Ticketmaster or Eventbrite about your upcoming concert, sports game or other event.”

Here are some pictures:

Plus, Google has expanded this feature on mobile devices where SSL is on by default.

    This is all very clever, but who actually wants it?

    I just don’t get why anybody would want to search for their private stuff using an internet search engine.

    I get Apple’s spotlight – it is searching all “your stuff” on your Mac… but when you search on Bing/Google etc you are looking for stuff on websites – not your stuff. Aren’t you?! Do people *really* want the two to converge, and if so – aren’t they more likely to want to search the internet from the place that they search “their stuff” rather than the other way around?
