Google has been quite busy this year. The Silicon Valley tech giant has been eliminating older apps and providing users with fresh, revamped alternatives. The latest feature to get the axe is Google Search’s built-in timer.
Say Goodbye to Google’s Timer
Back in 2013, Google added a useful feature to its search engine tool that had nothing to do with search at all: a timer. All users had to do was search for anything like “14 minute timer” or “timer till 2pm,” and Google would instantly produce a widget and start the countdown. People were already spending a lot of time on Google at the time, so it could have made sense to keep track of it there. That timeframe seems to have expired, at least on the desktop.
