Google Personal Search Survey: Users Already Find Information Easily Within Google Programs

Google is already the king of search. But now the tech giant is looking to add another search function to its repertoire. Google Personal Search would allow users to voice a question such as, “what am I doing today?” Then Google will comb through the user’s Gmail, Calendar, and other Google programs to find the answer. How many users might be interested in such a function? And how many already use these Google programs?
