Google’s graphing functionality in the search box that help students and math lovers plot functions in an easy, simple way is now able to do even more – the graphing calculator built into the search box now supports “3D plotting” as well.
“Just type any real two variable function into Google to see a dynamic, interactive, three dimensional plot. Click anywhere in the graph to rotate it to check out different angles, or scale the view by zooming in or out, or by editing the range in your equation or in the lower-right legend box,” Google informs.
“For example, if you’re a student studying advanced calculus, the ability to see a three dimensional graph will help you get a better visualization for real two variable functions,” Google explains.
This feature is available globally, and is enabled “WebGL,” that brings hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to the browser without the need to install additional software and is currently supported on modern web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox. However, Google is using WebGL for the the first time in Google Search.
