Most of us uses Google to search something and no doubt it’s one of the best search engine but did you know that there are several built-in functions within Google which makes searching stuff even easier. Here are some of it:

1. Calculator
Google search can be used as a calculator. It can calculate anything from the simplest math to the most complex equation. All you need to do is just enter the math in the search box and hit enter. You can use the following functions:

+ – * / (basic arithmetic)
% of (percentage of )
^ or ** (raise to a power)

Example:
12 + 34 - 56 * 7 / 8
45% of 39
2^5 or 2**5

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

2. Dictionary
You can define any word by entering “define:” following the word.
Example:
define: tagalog

3. Unit Converter
Using this feature you can convert units like millimeter into inches, kilometers into miles, liters into ml, etc..
Example:
125 km in miles
75 liters in ml

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

4. Currency Converter
Google’s search has an inbuilt currency converter. It allows you to perform any currency conversion (you should know the monetary unit of the country).
Example:
1 QAR in PHP
1 USD in PHP

5. Weather Updates
You can easily know the weather condition of a specific place. In order to find out, all you need to do is just enter the place name followed by “weather”.
Example:
Manila weather
Doha weather

6. Search for specific file type
There are various kinds of files available over the net. Searching for a specific file type isn’t really easy. For instance you want to search for a guide in loosing weight in power point format then you will use the “filetype:” feature.

Example:
guide to lose weight filetype:ppt

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

7. Search on a particular website
If you want to search for something from a particular site using Google search then you can do so by using the “site:” feature.
Example:
car insurance site:www.qatarliving.com

8. Get the Local Time anywhere
Want to know what time is it in London now? You can ask Google by typing “what time is it London” in the search bar. You can also enter “time (location)” without the quotes.
Example:
what time is it London
time Manila

9. Track flight status
You can also track a particular flight status. All you need to do is just enter the airline and flight number into the search box and hit enter.
