Following in the footsteps of both Yandex and Bing, Google has finally added Bitcoin currency conversion to their knowledge graph/one box results.
If you search for a conversion for Bitcoin, you will get the answer:
TechCrunch reports Google has partnered with CoinBase to power the conversion feature. A Google spokesperson told CoinDesk.com:
You can also ask Google to do conversions – if you have the Google Search app on your smartphone, for example, ask it, ‘How many Bitcoins are in 500 U.S. dollars?’ and you’ll get the answer in a handy conversion tool.
Again, Bing added this feature back in February of this year and Yandex, the large Russian search engine, added it back in December.
