Google search box is like our brain which can do a variety of things. The search box can be used as a calculator, spellchecker, dictionary and so on.

1. Calculator: The box can used to perform some simple mathematical calculations. For ex.

2. Currency Converter:

The box can be used for currency conversions. For ex: Let’s say we want to convert 50 USD into GBP then we need to use the following syntax.

3. Dictionary Definitions:

You can find the dictionary meaning of a particular word by using the following syntax.

4. Fill in The Blank:

Sometimes you don’t know the exact or complete phrase to be searched. So you can do it by placing an * at the end of the phrase.

5. Spell Checker:

The search box can also be used for checking the spelling of a word. All you need to type the keyword in the box and Google’s built in spell checker will tell you if the spelling is correct or not.
