YSK about Google’s timer


A cool trick using Google Search that probably you don’t know about. If you trying to search for timer, Google can easily provide one to you, it will even play an alarm when it gets to 0. The format, or search, you need to use is this:


Where TIME is a number and UNIT is a time unit. You can also say something like “timer 2 hours and 20 minutes and 50 seconds”. Just make sure that you separate the number from the unit, and you should be fine. The units you can use are:

  • hours
  • minutes
  • min
  • seconds
  • secs

No more than that, no “h” or “m” or “s”. Remember those and you should get it right every single time.

Of course, the timer has it’s limitations, the maximum calculation you can do is 23 hours with 59 minutes and 59 seconds.
