Google announced some new improvements to Inbox by Gmail, which it says are designed to help users find answers faster.

For one, when you search for something like a frequent flyer number or shipping status, Inbox will now show it at the top of search results, so you don't have to dig through emails to find them.

Google says you can "get addresses, phone numbers, membership numbers, flights, events, bills, package tracking and more in seconds."

"Underneath any quick answers, you'll see a 'Top results' section that orders emails by relevance," says product manager Govind Kaushal. "Below that is all the email results, ordered by date, but chances are you won't have to look here often."

Last month, Google added a new feature to Inbox to let users share trip bundles.
