Google’s really been giving Gmail a lot of love these past few months, specifically when it comes to search. It wasn’t too long ago we told you guys about Google’s new way of searching through attachment text and Google Drive files.

Now, ‘ol Googs has enabled the more advanced searching of both email sizes, dates, and more. Lookin’ for that email with pics of those Halloween babes you got sometime last year? Well, if you have a general idea of the size you can type “size:5m” or “larger:5m” for emails equal to, or larger than 5MB. You can even combine the query with other commands like older_than:1y if you have a general idea of when an email was sent/received. Awesome stuff.

The advanced search is already enabled in Gmail on both the web and Android app. If you’re looking for a complete list of advanced search terms, those can be found here and below (click for full size). Enjoy.
