Not just keywords – how Google search works (image search on your phone and voice search)

Using an Internet search engine is quite natural for us. All you have to do is type in a few keywords and Google will deliver results in no time. But did you know that there are also other ways we can find what we are looking for? Today’s post will focus on the slightly more advanced aspects of Google search: image search on the phone, graphic search and voice search.

Image search on the phone

It is increasingly common to see something interesting, such as a product we would like to purchase, but we do not know its name. This is where the following comes to our aid
image search
. All you have to do is take a picture of the item with your phone’s camera and upload it to Google Images. Google will try to find websites with the same object or similar ones. It’s a great tool for both recognizing items and finding inspiration online.

Searching with graphics

If you are an artist, designer or someone looking for inspiration in the field of art, a graphic design search can prove indispensable. Google offers a tool to search for images based on specific criteria, such as size, color or file type. You can also use the option to filter the results to find exactly what you need. Graphic search is a great way to find illustrations for presentations, photos for projects or artistic inspiration.

Voice Search

Someone might say that voice search is the future of the Internet. With voice assistants such as
Google Assistant
, we can ask questions and give commands, and our devices will understand us and provide answers. It is not only convenient, but also useful in many situations. If you’re a driver, you don’t have to stop driving to find the nearest gas station. All you have to do is say: “Hey Google, find a gas station near you,” and the assistant will deliver the results.

Google search is much more than just typing in keywords. With tools such as phone image search, graphic search and voice search, we can find information, products or inspiration on the Internet much more efficiently. These advanced search methods allow us to use the Internet in a more intuitive and user-friendly way.

Google search tricks

Here are some interesting tricks to help you use Google search more effectively:

  • Set Date Range: If you are looking for information on an event or article from a specific time period, you can use the “Time Tools” tool in the search results to limit the results to a specific date range.
  • Operator “site:”: You can limit your search results to a specific website by typing “site:” before the website address. For example, “” will only show results from the Wikipedia site.
  • Operator “filetype:”: If you are looking for a file with a specific type, such as a PowerPoint presentation, you can use the “filetype:” operator. For example, “filetype:ppt” will only show results containing PowerPoint files.
  • Unit Conversion: Google can convert units of measurement and currency. Type in, for example, “$10 is EUR” or “100 degrees Fahrenheit is degrees Celsius,” and Google will give you the relevant results.
  • Definitions: If you want to know the definition of a word, just type “define:” before the word. Google will provide the definition and information related to this word.
  • Calculator: type a mathematical equation in the search bar and Google will display the result. You can even use more advanced mathematical operations.
  • Flight Information: Type in your flight number and Google will show you up-to-date flight information, such as status and departure/arrival times.
  • Search Movies and Music: Search for movies and music tracks by adding the word “movie” or “music” after the name of the movie or song. Google will deliver results from YouTube, Spotify and other platforms.
  • Maps and Weather: You can check the current weather or search for maps and directions by typing “weather at [mieście]” or “route to [miejsca]”.
  • Voice Commands: If you use a voice-enabled device such as Google Assistant, you can use voice commands to perform searches, set reminders, read messages, etc.
  • Games & Games: Search “Atari Breakout” on Google Graphics and you will discover a hidden game. You can also type “do a barrel roll” or “zerg rush” and see what happens!
  • Flight Location: If you have location enabled on your smartphone, you can track the location of your flight by entering the flight number directly in the search bar.
  • Barcode: You can scan a product’s barcode with your phone’s camera, and Google will show you information about it.
  • Event Planning: Enter a date and Google will show you upcoming holidays and events related to that date.

These are just a few interesting tricks you can use when searching on Google. It is worth experimenting and exploring the various possibilities that this powerful search engine offers.
