Google Timer and Google Stopwatch

Most smartphones have a timer app. But Google also offers a timer and a stopwatch. If you enter the search term "5 minutes of timer" in the Google search mask, a timer appears above the search results that can be individually placed. A stopwatch can also be started right next to it.

Google calculator

The Google search bar is not only the gateway for endless information from the World Wide Web, but also a calculator. If you enter "6*10", the search engine spits out the corresponding result and forwards directly to a calculator with even more functions. This also appears in the search for "calculator" or after "The Answer to Life the Universe and Everything".


In addition to "The Answer to Life the Universe and Everything" there are other Easterggs with which useful and useless secret functions can be accessed via the search bar. The search commands are in English and sound:
