Google update now supports Bitcoin price in search results!

Following suit of Microsoft’s Bing, Google, the world’s most popular search engine, has now added live bitcoin prices into its search results for the digital currency.
The update, which was confirmed just hours ago by a member of the Google team, also provides functionality to mobile users on their smart phones and tablets as well:
The Google spokesperson told CoinDesk:
“You can also 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’s decision to add a live bitcoin price to its general search results for the digital currency comes just several weeks after both Yahoo Finance and Bing decided to add the price into their results. Though Bing was the first to do so, adding the result into its query back in mid-February. 
FEATURES
Now, with the simple query of the keyword “bitcoin price,” you can quickly catch up to the minute results on the digital currency’s latest value.
The feature takes it one step further, allowing users to punch in different amounts of the digital currency, working as a bitcoin calculator so to speak. Google’s bitcoin price results also include a price chart, going as far back as to 2011 in displaying the digital currency’s progression throughout the years.
Google’s latest upgrade does; however, come with a disclaimer as does many of its price charts, disclosing that in terms of real-time results, investors should not solely rely on the indicator and should always seek outside advice or guidance before making investment decisions.
