One of the very useful, and not too well known, functions of Google search is unit and currency conversion. We use it practically daily and it really makes our life simpler.
Essentially you can convert between currencies e.g. EUR to USD through a simple search. Just enter x-amount CURRENCY1 to CURRENCY2 in the search box and Google will hande the rest. Specifically in our example we entered 600 EUR to USD and quickly got our result.
Besides currency conversion, Google also does simple unit conversion in the same way. You can convert between different units of length, weight or volume among others. So, you could, for example convert centimetres to inches using, x cm to inches; or pounds to kilograms using, x lbs to kg.
Note that Google can understand both the extended form and abbreviations so the latter could be x pounds to kilograms. It can also be helpful in cooking, as you can for example convert cups to oz or liters.
Give it a go and through experimentation we’re sure you will find many uses for this search function.
