Using !Bangs

Bangs

To use connected integrations, you need to start your query with a !bang (inspired by DuckDuckGo’s bangs). Bangs are special configurable shortcuts that tell the search engine to use specific integrations.

For example, to search your Dropbox files, type !dropbox report 2021. This query will limit the search for report 2021 only to your connected Dropbox account.
