Google on Wednesday made available a new Gmail feature for searching across your messages, documents and Google sites.

You can activate Apps Search in 3 easy steps (go to Settings, click on the Labs tab and enable Apps Search).

According to Google, "Standard Edition users can follow these instructions immediately, while Premier and Education Edition users will first need their domain administrators to enable Gmail Labs from the Google Apps control panel."

Google says the reason for coming out with the feature is to eliminate the need to do separate searches across its applications.

Google has consistently rolled out Gmail improvements, including last month a way to spice up your Gmail signatures.
