10 things you didn’t know you could do with Google

Ah Google. What on earth did we do without you? 

It’s a genuine concern – what if one day the answer to how to make pancakes or where’s the nearest bar was no longer one quick search away?

It may have ruined all pub quizzes forever, but we need it all the same.

Google is here to solve all your problems and in ways you might not have expected.

Here are ten things you may not have known that you could do with Google.

1) Set a timer

This comes in handy when the timer on your cooker doesn’t work. Or if you were working out in your living room and your computer is just that little bit closer than your phone.

What do you do? Go to Google.

Type ‘set timer for’ and the amount of time you want it to run for. As soon as the results load, it’ll start counting down.

2) Calculate your tip

You know how it is. You’ve had a massive, boozy dinner and not a single member of the large 10+ party is sober enough to accurately work out the tip.

Thankfully Google always is.

Type tip calculator into search calculator and this screen will come up, allowing you to input your bill and how much tip in percentage

Unfortuntely, it only seems to let you do it with dollars. Which is why you also need to…

3) Convert your currency

Type in currency converter. Enter the amount you need to convert and the type of currency. Done.

4) Work out how many calories are in your food

A handy tool for dieters and for the morbidly curious to calculate just how bad that large pizza was for you.

Simply Google ‘calories in’ your chosen food. Say, cheese, my favourite naughty treat.

You can change the value for how much you’re eating, whether that be just a slice, a cup full or the sad sorry truth.

Like probably around 100g, so 400 calories, of cheese.

The horror.

5) Get an instant anagram by Googling anagram

Good one, Google. Good one.

6) Translate almost any phrase

Now here’s a way to impress your international date.

Blow your Swedish date away by expressing your affection for them by knowing the exact phrase to tell them you love them.

7) Or surprise them at the airport

Who doesn’t like being greeted at the airport? It’s one sure way to show you care.

But if your intended is still in the air with their phone switched off, how are you meant to know where to surprise them with a enormous bunch of flowers?

Come to the rescue Google.

Simply Google their flight number, and you’ll get all the information you need:

8) Go back to an easier, simpler time

The internet. You were so basic once.

This is a hack for when the present gets a bit much.

Google ‘Google in 1998’ and be whisked back to the 90s. Which we all need now and then.

9) Google ‘zerg rush’

You’ll be taken directly to Google’s in-search game. Can you click on the Os as they attack your screen and save your search results?

Just for s***s and giggles. You’ll see.
