20 things you didn’t know you could do with GooglePosted: February 1, 2016
And thanks to ShortList we’ve discovered another 20 reasons to use Google. Check out these #LifeHack worthy Google tips and tricks.
- Spell it out!
If you’re majoring in accounting or you are a right-brained creative type, then you’ll definitely need the digits for Google’s phonetic numbers.
Simply, type in your large number sequence followed by “=english” and whala! Your number will appear ready for reading.
- Fontalicious fonts for all
Want to get fancy this semester? Jazz-up your assessments with Google’s free typography library. Type “Fonts” into – you guessed it – Google and peruse the beautiful array of words until your heart’s content. No, Comic Sans doesn’t feature.
- Atari Breakout (this one comes with a serious procrastination warning)
We know what you’re thinking, but don’t worry it’s not a new genre of dance or a recently-discovered skin condition. Atari Breakout is essentially a game hidden within Google images that’s highly addictive.
Which is why we suggest exploring this Google feature when you do not, we repeat, do not have a 2000-word essay due on Monday. Trust us, we know. This blog post was scheduled for last week…Oops ;-).
- A template for every situation
You’ll never have to stare at a blank page again thanks to Google’s document template gallery. Whether you’re writing a CV or a business report, Google’s gallery is a great place to begin before you get into the nitty gritty of your assessments. You = 1, Procrastination = 0.
- That’s the definition of…
Stuck in an ongoing argument about what Guerilla Marketing is with no end in site? Let Google’s definition tool come to your rescue. Search “Guerilla Marketing=define” for the accepted definition and you’ll be gloating about your marketing jargon skills in no time!
Happy Googling (yes, it’s now also a verb)!
