New Google search

Google SearchLate last week Google announced improvements to allow the search engine to answer your questions directly on the search page. You may remember a recent tip we posted about using Google as a calculator. Google has expanded its capability to answer other questions in the same way, displaying them as cards at the top of your search. The feature now covers

• Finance

• currency conversion

• unit conversion

• dictionary definitions

• local time lookup

• flight tracking

• national holiday dates

• sunrise times

For example, if you want to know what time the sun will rise in Sydney, simply type “sunrise in Sydney” into the search box and you will see a card at the top of search results displaying this and other related information. This feature will also work on phones and tablets which make it incredibly useful when out and about.

The feature will be rolled out over the next few weeks for English searches, with other languages coming soon. You can read more about the update and see more images on Google’s Goolge+ page.
