Gmail's Option for Excluding Chats from Search Results

Gmail's advanced search box has a new option: "don't include chats". If you click the checkbox, Gmail will append to your query: "-in:chats".

To see the advanced search box, click the small arrow icon from the Gmail search box. It's an easy way to use powerful Gmail features if you don't want to manually add operators like from:, to: or has: to your searches. You can also create filters.


  1. Some powerful features for gmail that are timeless. Thanks for sharing them Alex!

  2. Yes i got the option "Don't include chats" but what if i always want this to be enable so that every time i search chats should not be displayed!!!
