Google is testing an internet speed tool in its search results

Soon get your Internet speed with “Check Internet Speed” in Google search

Next time you want to know your Internet speed, just type in “Check Internet Speed” in your Google search box and you will be surprised by the result. Forget Ookla and other speed test apps, Google will soon be giving you, your internet speeds directly in your Google search box.

It looks like everyone wants to have their own “speed tests” these days. After, Netflix’s fast.com and Microsoft’s Bing speed test widget, it’s now the turn of Google to launch its own speed test.

The search giant is reported to be trying out a way for people to allow them to check their internet speed by simply typing “check internet speed” into search.

Pete Meyers posted a screenshot on Twitter showing the Google speed test tool in their search results. The tests were performed by Google’s Measurement Lab tools. The inline speed test tool might work like calculator, currency, conversion tools on search results.

As per the image shared by Meyers, Google internet speed test will consume less than 40MB of data and will check your internet speed in less than 30 seconds. However, the full speed test image is not shared.

Currently, the new internet speed test result in search results is under testing and it is not showing up for all users. The test measures download speed, upload speed, and latency. According to Google, the best internet connections have high download and upload speeds but low latency.

It is unclear as to when will Google release the new internet speed test tool on its search results. There are also chances that the speed test tool may never come on Google, as it not necessary that all tests done by the search giant becomes a reality.

Watch this space for more updates on Google’s speed test tools.
