Talking tech since 2003

It appears now that Google will now inform you of your current IP (Internet Protocol) Address if you query the search engine with “what is my ip.”  For years, sites like WhatIsMyIP.com and IPChicken would help Internet users learn their IP address — well, now they are really no longer necessary as Google looks to help inform users looking for an answer to that age-old question.

When you type the query into the search box, it will return your IP on top of the results and also provide a “Learn More” link that further explains what an IP Address is and what it is used for on the Internet.  Simple, yes, but very useful.  Little things like this are why I love Google.  I’ve included a screenshot below of the feature in action.
