Google is definitely more than a normal search engine, it allows you to get real time currency conversions with its currency converter, real time Stock info and a whole lot more right on the search engine results page. The main motto behind all this is for the user to not only get the information faster but also save a click, bandwidth and hence time.
And now it has been found out that Google can also be used as an online Timer. Search for “Timer” followed by number of hours or minutes or seconds for which you want set the timer (“Set timer”, “Timer For” followed by time also works) . For ex: Timer Two Hours is also same as Timer 2 hours. The timer can be stopped, reset and resumed at any point. Browser will also play a beep sound once the set time is over, there is also an option to avoid the beep sound by clicking on the volume icon on the right bottom corner. However its also important to note that once the timer is set it works without the internet, it works on the browser and not the internet, internet is just needed to start the timer on Google.
