Google works hard to offer us all the information we need and, also, in the fastest way. There are different ways to check the news, sports results and also the weather information, from the search engine itself to Google Assistant or the mobile application.
Google has had the most used search engine in the world for years. We can ask about everything, it will show us websites with the information we are looking for, it will open small applications that will help us solve our doubts, such as an updated currency converter or a calculator. With the weather information The same thing happens, we can access the meteorological information easily, consulting different parameters as well as the forecast for the following days from practically any corner of the world.
