bubble levelThe thing you have to love about Google is that the answer to your search results can sometimes be displayed at a glance, for example if you wanted to convert something from one measure to another. Or sometimes the search results will display a summary of the answer, with links if you want an expanded answer.

Now it seems that Google search can even double up as a tool in the event that you might need a bubble level. As you can see in the screenshot above, searching for “bubble level” on Google will result in an actual working bubble level being displayed in its search results. Based on what we have read so far, it seems that not all phones are supported, or it could potentially be your browser settings. It also works on iOS devices, just in case you’re wondering if it’s an Android only thing.

For those who are unfamiliar with bubble/spirit levels, basically these are tools that you use to determine if the ground is level. Or sometimes it can be used by landscape photographers to ensure that their cameras are level even if the tripod is placed on an uneven surface. It can also come in handy if you want to hang paintings or photos on the wall and you want to make sure that it isn’t crooked.

Will this replace actual bubble/spirit levels? Maybe not, but if you wanted one in a pinch or if you don’t want to go out and buy one specifically, we reckon this should be able to get the job done.
