Google Search Amazing Hidden Features Probably Don’t Know
No one would argue the fact that Google is one of the most useful sites on the Internet. Unfortunately, most people only use about 3% of its power.
Google is used by millions of people to navigate the web every day, but how many of us really put it through its paces? The Telegraph digs out a few of the search engine’s hidden gems.
1) Play “Atari Breakout”(Google Images) Remember the classic Atari game Breakout? Google is commemorating the game’s 37th anniversary with a fun, little surprise today. 2) Play Pacman Type “Pacman” and click Search. Click to start playing the game. 3) Play Zerg Rush A playable game originally created by Google with small ‘o’ characters that destroy search results if they are not clicked with the mouse pointer. 4) Input Handwriting for Translation Go to Google Translator, click the pencil option at the bottom left side of the text box and write the word by hand. This is helpful when translating from character-based languages. 5) How to Pronounce Big Numbers If you want Google Search to teach you how to pronounce big numbers, just type in the figure, then adds an equal (=) and the language you want it to be pronounced. However, this works for up to 13 digits only. 6) Use It Like a Calculator You can not only perform direct calculations, e.g. 5^3, 10+5, 15-8, 35*55, 100/50 in the search bar, but also can calculate the results for trigonometric functions as well. 7) Solve Geometrical Shapes You can solve for geometrical shapes such as circle, rectangle, triangle, trapezoid, ellipse etc. With Google search. To do so type “solve” and add a shape e.g. “Solve triangle”, click the search button and it will return you with a calculator to solve that shape. Not only this but you can also choose to solve for area, perimeter, gamma, height, side (a) or side (c). Each shape carries a different calculator. 8) Generate a Graph
You can create a graph instantly for a mathematical function. For instance, search “graph for x^2” or “graph for tan (x)” and so on. The search results returned with the graph drawn.
9) Google Tip Calculator
You can calculate the Waiter Tip with this if you are poor with math but not with tips. Search “tip calculator”, enter your bill amount, tip % and select the number of people contributing to the bill to get how much your tip is.
10) Currency Conversion
Although currency conversions could be done via Google Currency Converter but if you want to perform currency conversion directly from the Google search bar, then just type, the currency you want to convert from and into like this: 50 GBP to USD. The search result will return with the converted amount.
