But Google's search system isn't just about finding recipes or the latest funny cat videos. It's loaded with cool, hidden features that might surprise you!

1. Track your packages
Keeping track of your packages used to mean logging into the USPS, UPS or FedEx site. But did you know Google can track almost any package for you?

Just enter the package tracking number directly into the search box. Google will pull up quick links that let you easily track the status of your shipment.

2. Check your flight status
Need to know if a flight is delayed? Type your airline name and flight number into Google. You'll instantly see the flight's arrival and departure status. Google even shows you terminal and gate number information.

3. Get a quick translation
Need a quick translation of a foreign word? Instead of reaching for the nearest reference dictionary, try Google's translation feature.

Just type 'translate to ' for a quick translation. So, for example, you can try 'translate chien to english.' Google will tell you that chien means "dog" in French.
