Google Search’s built-in Timer and Stopwatch
Search Giant Google provides many built-in tools to narrow down your search and give you the answers you want without even having to click through to another website. As we are very much familiar with the most popular Google Search’s built-in Timer and Stopwatch feature with this we can do a search like, for example, “10 minutes stopwatch” or even “ok Google, count 10 minutes”. but unfortunately, in mid-July, this feature disappeared from the search results due to some technical glitch, and Google search spokesperson, Danny Sullivan responded that “The why is we have an issue that we’ve been looking and, and we expect to have it back fairly soon” and now the feature is back on Google Search.
Danny Sullivan announced via a tweet that:
Welcome back “Google set a timer for X minutes.” Kudos to the team that worked to get this working again. pic.twitter.com/I6V8bZCm7i

Welcome back “Google set a timer for X minutes.” Kudos to the team that worked to get this working again.
However, The tool remains the same, so to use the stopwatch Google “stopwatch” and click the “start” button. And if at the time of use you want to edit the timer, click on the countdown numbers.
This tool was launched by Google in 2013 and, shortly after it had a problem and disappeared in mid-July
