Google Search checks grammarBack
Since last month, Google Search checks whether a typed search query is also grammatically correct. When searching "my lawn has fewer grass than my neighbor's" in the search engine, Google will indicate that you probably meant "less" instead of "fewer".
While most people probably won't really care about the grammar of their query, this feature probably serves a more general purpose. For example, if you're unsure about a phrase you're typing into a messaging app, Google hopes you'll check it in Google Search: after all, anything that gets more searches is good for business.
The grammar checker can also correct spelling mistakes. But Google says the feature may not be 100 percent accurate, especially with loose search terms. As usual with Google, the new feature will be available in the United States first and will be rolled out later to other parts of the world.
Timer and stopwatch
The built-in timer function in Google Search is also back. To use this handy feature, just type into Google Search "set a timer for [how long you want in minutes or seconds]", for example "set a timer for 30 seconds", and a timer will pop up that automatically starts counting down. You can also activate the stopwatch in the same screen. But you can also request it by typing "stopwatch" in Google Search. The timer is useful when you play games in which you have to do as many things as possible in a limited time.
