Know what time it is with !localtime

All too often I’m caught unawares of the time and date, but no more with the Duck Duck Go !localtime bang. The website can do pretty much any type of time or weather conversion I need.

Syntax: !localtime city (leave out the State or Province, as that will only confuse it).

Example: !localtime toronto
