Google Adds Search by Number Feature

Google has released a new feature called Search by Number for users to find information related to parcel tracking IDs, patents, and other specialized numbers. For example, typing "fedex" followed by a space and a FedEx tracking number will return the latest information on a package.

Search by Number offerings include:

  • UPS tracking numbers example search: [1Z9999W999999999]
  • FedEx tracking numbers example search: [fedex 999999999999]
  • Patent numbers example search: [patent 5123123]
  • FAA airplane registration numbers (usually found on tail): [n199ua]
  • FCC equipment IDs example search: [fcc B4Z-34009-PIR]

Google by Number is available now on to all English language users throughout the world. International versions will be made available in the coming months. More information can be found here: The company seeks suggestions for other types of numbers to search.
