Google offers so much more than just search. From the silly to the useful, these Google features will make you love Google even more than you probably already did.
- You can set a timer on Google (and get an alarm to sound when time is up) by Googling any amount of time followed by “timer.”
- Google Sky lets you explore the far reaches of the universe using images from NASA satellite, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, and the Hubble Telescope.
- Google nGrams is a fun tool that lets you search for words in 5.2 million books published between 1500 and 2008 so you can see how much it’s been used over time.
- Intimidated by huge numbers? Google will help you figure out how to pronounce that 12-string number if you type “=english” after it.
- Unleash your inner child by checking out Google’s Build with Chrome.
- You can add “+anything” when typing your email address and it will still work. This can be good for filtering emails.

- There’s a “Manual” feature in Google Translate that lets you draw characters or symbols.
- Get your culture on by using Google Art Project to check out super high-res photos of artwork from the world’s greatest museums.
