Google Improves Results for Natural Language Queries

Now that Google's voice search technology has improved and it's used by more and more people, the search engine has to be smart enough to understand natural language queries, which are often verbose.

As you can see from these screenshots, Google can find instant answers for complicated queries like [225 cm + 134 mm plus two times 45 cm minus one and a half meter] or [127 euros times 3 - 15 percent in hungarian money]. You don't even have to know the name of the currency you want to convert and Wolfram Alpha won't help you.

  1. The one I tried just today that impresses me converts euros/liter into dollars/gallon, the US equivalent: "1.35 euros/liter as USD/gallon". It converts both the quantities and the currency for the result. And it says that record gas prices in California aren't even close to European prices!
