How To Use Google Search Engine as an Online Timer

Title Image

How often do you forget things? Quite often? Then probably we both fall into unique issues of persistent memory loss. Sometimes it becomes imperative for me to have an alarm or a timer along or around to keep me reminded of some tasks necessary to perform. If you seem to have the same problem, then don't worry, you're at the right place to find a quick and easy solution.

Keeping an alarm clock or an external timer with you to help you remind tasks is not a good idea anymore? Why? Its simple, first you need to have someone to remind you to keep the timer along. There is also a possibility of losing it.

For such scenarios, there are various web applications like, that can help you create countdown timers, but here is something even better. You won't feel the need of such browser apps as Google search can be effectively used for this purpose. To my surprise, and many others', Google offers to setup a countdown timer online, by setting a simple command of fixed pattern. 

You can see the pattern below along with a sample timer commands.

Command Pattern

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

Sample Commands

  1. timer for 1 hour 2 minutes 40 seconds 
  2. timer for 20 minutes
  3. set timer for 5 seconds

As you can already infer from the command pattern and the given sample commands, you can choose a combination of hours, minutes and seconds, depending on how longer do you want to set the timer. Also the word 'set' is optional. The timer will still work even if you don't use it. 

An alarm goes off as soon as the timer converges to zero. This is an alarm by the browser, which means it will shut down as soon as you close the browser or the specific tab that had the timer running. 

This is a good way to keep you reminded of things and tasks. Things like sticky notes are out dated and people don't really use them anymore. Also using this Google's countdown timer is convenient as compared to other related web apps.
