You can activate this mode by typing " set timer to __ hours _ minutes _ seconds" (You should fill in the empty space with your preferred digits) and watch Google start a live countdown on your screen with the alarm coming up as countdown is completed -see screenshot below.


2. Google can help you eat healthy

Simply type the names of two different foods you eat often in this format A VS B to see the nutritive value. In my screenshot, I used "Rice vs Beans" since that is a general food here.
