New Google Searches That Give Instant Answers

Google now gives you quick answers to many special searches. Here are some of them:

Calculator
Just type in a quick calculation and Google will provide an answer. Google now offers a clickable calculator tool when you search for a calculation, so you can use Google like you’d use a calculator application on your desktop or smartphone.

Unit Conversions
Google can also convert between a variety of units. Just type a search in the form X unit to unit. For example, 10 lbs to kgs converts 10 pounds to Celsius. As with the calculator, the unit conversion tool is clickable.
You can also combine unit conversations and math. For example, the search ten miles in kilometers will return a valid answer.

 

Currency Conversions
Google can also do currency conversions for you. You can do a search such as usd to rupee to see the exchange rate between two currencies, or do a search such as 100 usd to euros to see how much a certain amount of currency is worth in another currency.

Your IP Address
You can determine your current public IP address by typing what is my ip into Google – or just search for my ip.

Weather
To see the weather in a specific location, search for weather location – for example, search for weather new delhi to see a weather forecast for New York. If you enter weather without a location, Google will show you the weather for your current area.
