Google Search Results Will Pull Results From Your Gmail Now

Google will start showing you relevant information from your Gmail when you perform a regular Google Search soon. Try it out now before it becomes official!
And since your email has a ton of information that you need, Google will be able to pull relevant information from your emails and display it alongside your search results. Google's Knowledge Graph launch was earlier this year, and it looks like their whole approach to search has changed. Folding Gmail into search results fits into this new mantra. Previously, Google wanted to provide you links to information. Now it wants you to check out some of the information you already have with you.
The trial is limited to users with @gmail.com email addresses, and it will only be available on Google.com in English. If you sign up and you don't like it, you can later opt-out of the trial. [Google via The Next Web]
