Google as online timer

2013-09-09_1238

Do you need a simple timer to remind you of upcoming tasks like calling your spouse, making that phone call to your client etc. There are lot of web apps, that let you create countdown timers in the browser quickly but you may not need them anymore. This is because you can now setup up one inside Google itself by entering the timer command in the search box in the following format (the word “set” is optional): 

timer for <time> OR set timer for <time>

eg: timer for 30 minutes 20 seconds

The <time> can use a combination of hours, minutes and seconds. For instance, you may use search commands like set timer for 30 minutes or timer for 1 hour 30 minutes and the timer will spring into action. When the time has passed, the browser plays a sound.

Also,instead of setting the time in the search command, you can just use the search query
“timer” inside Google and then manually set the timer.
