Dallas, Texas 07/18/2014 (FINANCIALSTRENDS) – Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) the search engine giant has always ensured intuitive online technology features on its browser, through ongoing technology upgrades. Most features it provides are unimaginable and once available users begin to wonder however they functioned without the feature.
However, this time around, there is doubt, if perhaps in its urgency to be the first-to-provide, Google has undone itself!
The feature in question is the addition of digital cryptocurrency – bitcoin – on its currency conversion calculator. The acronym for the currency is BTC, a la USD for US Dollar.
In a recent update, the open source software maker has confirmed that it has included a new service as an app as well as online.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) added that the new service would now allow users to be able to search for currency history as well as place queries and receive answers.
Google spokesperson commented that, the calculator can be used to “ask Google to do conversions — if you have the Google Search app on your smartphone, for example, ask it, ‘How many bitcoin are in 500 U.S. dollars?’ and you’ll get the answer in a handy conversion tool,”
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) however, maybe a bit late with the bitcoin addition as other search engines such as Bing and Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) have already included the feature at the start of the year!
Where Google’s calculator differs is that it has used the services of Coinbase to help in tracking bitcoin. Coinbase already has an established presence in the virtual currency world and operates a digital wallet. The wallet is currently in vogue across the world and is being used to buy bitcoins, use it for transactions as well as accept bitcoins as payment.
Though there is criticism about the non-viability of adding virtual currency to mainstream use, time is the answer!
