Want to Know How Much Your Bitcoins Are Worth? Just Google It!
Google's search engine has had a built-in currency converter for years now, and now it added an interesting addition to the mix: Bitcoin.
To find out how much a certain amount of Bitcoin is worth in any currency or vice versa, just Google "X Y to Bitcoin," where "X" is the amount and "Y" is the currency. For example, Google will swiftly tell you that "300 USD to Bitcoin" equals 0.4829 Bitcoin.
Other syntaxes, such as "how much is 100 Bitcoin in British pounds" or "what is 50AUD in Bitcoin" also work. You can also simply Google "Bitcoin price" to get the current value of Bitcoin.
The new functionality was integrated approximately a month after Google Finance partnered with Bitcoin exchange Coinbase to add a Bitcoin chart into its service.
Other cryptocurrencies don't work as of this writing, and Google by default mistakenly turns some of them, like Litecoin, into Bitcoin. Since there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there, we don't expect Google to include them all in its currency converter any times soon.
