Agonising over a difficult decision? Can’t get your team to agree?
Google’s got your back.
Hidden in the search engine is a neat Easter egg that lets you flip a virtual coin — perfect for settling disputes or choosing between two options.
It’s dead simple: Just search for “flip a coin,” “coin flip,” or something else along those lines.
Google will return the search results as normal — but insert a randomised coin-flip answer at the top.
Just like this:
Aaaaand that’s really all there is to it. It ain’t complex.
There’s another variant, if you’re looking for a little more choice: A dice roll. Just search for “roll a die” and Google will shoot a random number between one and six back at you.
Lastly, Google can give you a random number between any given range. Enter “random number” in the search field, enter in the desired values in the box, and you’re good to go.
These are minor features — but they’re pretty handy, and you never know when you might need them. They work on both desktop and mobile too.
