Google knows how to hide small details in their tools. Those eggs that are difficult to locate but once we hit them leaves a smile on your face. Some are simple aesthetic ornaments, at other times they are the typical tricks that you learn at some point if you need it. Today we have to talk about the latter because in the search box on Google Android is a curious and useful surprise.
A user on Reddit descubrió few days ago that if you wanted “bubble level” in Google you showed spirit level with to know if a surface is perfectly flat or is slightly inclined. No need to use a specific application (in Play there are plenty of apps), with a search you only have to have this tool at hand
To enable this all you need is function make the search from the United States (Google.com or switching to English in the search engine preferences). You type “bubble level” and press to enter. Then you will see that you will get a level of functional bubble. The search engine (I recommend using Chrome) device uses accelerometers to calculate the slope and showing the data with the same precision as its analog sister.
So far this little trick does not work in Spanish so we’ll have to follow these steps to use on Android. On the version of the operating system, I have been tested with Lollipop (Zuk Z1) and Marshmallow (Nexus 6P) and in none of these cases I have had problems. Now, reading some forums I discovered that Android 6.0 can not run correctly
