For musicians, the metronome needs no introduction. For others, it’s a device that produces ticks within a specified time, allowing musicians to time their songs or melodies. With Google, you can search “Metronome” and select your desired beats per minute (BPM).

2. Bubble level

Placing objects on a level is one of the most important aspects of redecorating a home or office space. While our eyes do a decent job, there are times when even a slight misalignment can be frustrating. Instead of splurging money on a traditional leveler, you can simply type ‘bubble level’ into Google to access a virtual bubble level, helping you level objects using your phone’s sensors.

3. Festivus

If you’re a fan of the show “Seinfeld,” you’ll know about Festivus. The holiday which was created as an alternative to Christmas due to its commercialism and pressures. When you search the word “Festivus” on Google, you’ll see the undecorated aluminum pole on the left-hand side of the search results as a tribute to the festival.

4. Check grammar

Have you ever needed to check the grammar of a sentence but weren’t sure where to do it? Instead of going to sites like Grammarly and signing up, you can check the sentence on Google itself. Just type in your sentence followed by “check grammar.” Google will evaluate the sentence and display a green checkmark if it’s correct or offers a correction, which you can then copy.

5. Pronounce Numbers

Simply type the number into the Google search box followed by “= English,” and voilà! The search engine will display the English version, which you can easily copy and paste.
