Google used to be just a simple search engine. The company now owns YouTube, Android, among many other services. However, it has always been known for its search engine, and it is constantly improving its search interface.
Google knows everything; if you’re looking for a weather forecast or a current ranking, you can find it on Google. Since Google knows all, it gives you a few options for narrowing down your search. There are a few things you can do right from the web search results page.
In this post, we’ll go through some of the cool Google features that most people aren’t aware of. Let’s take a look at them.
If you don’t have a clock, you can use a stopwatch. Simply search for “Stopwatch” in Google, and a clock will appear above the results.
If you want to lead a countdown, the same rule applies. If you type “countdown” or “Timer” into Google, a clock will appear above the results, ready to begin a countdown.
You never know when a metronome could come in handy. As a result, Google has already created one, which you can access by typing “Metronome” into the search box.
If you prefer going to the movies, it’s a fast way to find out what’s on in your neighborhood. You’ll see a list of movies over the results if you type “Movies” followed by the same. The showtimes and seat availability are also shown when you click on the movie title.
See your photos in the cloud
Your photos, which you synced in the cloud, are one personal thing you see on Google. Simply write “My images” or “My pictures” to accomplish this.
See what falls on any given day
If you’re planning a holiday or a tour, you may want to know when the festival will take place. You may ask Google by entering the festival’s name and the year (for example, “Christmas 2021” or “Good Friday 2021”).
Flip a coin
Which is it: heads or tails? If you don’t have a coin handy to determine anything important, Google will help. If you look for “Flip a coin,” you’ll find a virtual currency that you can use to bet on heads or tails.
Roll a die
Google has provided this function, similar to the currency, since you never know how much you’ll need one. Simply type “roll dice” and you’ll have six virtual faces at your disposal.
Fun facts are tidbits of information that Google displays in a unique format if you type “Fun facts” into the search box. Did you know that Venice is made up of 118 islands linked by 400 bridges and 170 boats?
Google in 1998
This final trick helps you to go back in time quickly. If you search for “Google in 1998,” you will be able to see how the search engine appeared in 1998.
