Google calculator gets a new look: A Body with buttons

Google guys just gave their calculator a makeover, rather a body I should say. If you have read my previous post on Google Tips And Tricks  then you would know that Google calculator is a kind of program that gives you the calculated result right away on the first page when you enter a query like this:

Here is a snapshot of what the result used to look like when you entered a query such as above:

And here's a look at the new and interactive Google Calculator:
New Google Calculator

In my previous post I explained how to use mathematical operators to get the calculated result. But now you don't have to worry about remembering any of it as whatever you need is right in one place. It has 34 buttons, including standard trigonometric functions, exponents and buttons for the transcendental numbers, pi and e. To use it you just have to follow these simple steps:
1. Go to the Google website

2. Type calculator

3. The virtual calculator opens below

4. Do any calculation that you need to do

Note: You can just type in your query and the calculator would come up. You don't need to follow Step 2 in that case.

Bonus: It also works on mobile. According to a MASHABLE quick test, it appeared in both Safari and Chrome on iOS and of course on Android as well. Although the scientific functions aren’t visible in portrait mode, they appear when you flip your phone to landscape — a trick Google’s borrowing from the iOS-standard calculator.

Punching buttons is a little unwieldy in the desktop browser, but it’s natural as can be on a phone. Plus, on both versions, you can do calculations via voice search. The voice interface can even discern such phrasing as “cosine of 60 degrees.”

Thank you guys for reading it and if you liked it then do share it with your friends. And don't forget to leave your thoughts/experience about this calculator in the comments .CHEERS.
