Now Gmail actually indexes the contents of your attachments so that when you search for a phrase in Gmail, your attachments will be searched as well.

This makes Gmail search that much more powerful, and is very helpful in those situations where someone sent you an email with only an attachment and a subject line, with no text in the body of the email. We think you’ll enjoy this new feature.

The search video was not clear – does it automatically search, or do you have to put in other key words, such as Attachment?
