Google Cloud SearchGoogle has launched a new tool for its business customers that enables users to search across G Suite products, including Gmail, Drive, Docs, Calendar, and more.

Google Cloud Search, known as Springboard during its limited preview, uses machine learning with the aim of providing a unified and efficient search across the G Suite. Google says it has introduced the search based on the fact that the average knowledge worker spends 20 per cent of the workweek searching for an consolidating information.

“Every day, people around the globe rely on the power of Google Search to access the world’s information. In fact, we see more than one trillion searches each year. As we continue to invest in new cloud-based technologies like machine learning to power our web search engine, we want to help businesses harness the same technology to search for internal information,” said Brent VerWeyst, product manager at Google Cloud, in a blog post.

“Cloud Search brings the best of Google Search and machine intelligence to G Suite. It provides both comprehensive search and proactive recommendations to help you throughout your day.”

Cloud Search uses Assist Cards to display relevant and timely information to the user, through Googles machine learning technology, to help them navigate their workday more efficiently.
