Sometimes we need to search the chat history for a specific chat; however, we may not get the exact results of what we want. The reason incorrect keywords. Recently, after Hangout got released; the keywords like “chat with Email-id” isn’t working anymore. Eg: “chat with heyugeek@gmail.com

I have also tested with “hangout with heyugeek@gmail.com” and it ain’t working either. After trying for few minutes I got the answer. There is more than one way to search the history for a specific chat.

The easiest one is by typing “in:chats email-id” Eg: “in:chats heyugeek@gmail.com

If you want to search only the chat you received from an email-id, then : “in:chats from:(Email-id)” Eg: “in:chats from:(heyugeek@gmail.com)

Only the chat you sent to an email-id: “in:chats to:(Email-id)” Eg: “in:chats to:(heyugeek@gmail.com)

Chat you sent to an email-id with the word “Hello” : “in:chats to:(Email-id) Hello” Eg: “in:chats to:(heyugeek@gmail.com) Hello
