A technical malfunction on Google Search showed a significant drop in the value of the US dollar compared to the Pakistani rupee late Tuesday night.
The unexpected drop in the US dollar rate to Rs186.73 surprised and bewildered many, especially since the local currency hadn’t experienced a significant rebound recently.
This was not the first time a bug took over the world’s greatest search engine; it has happened several times before, with users reporting a significant drop in currency values.
In July of last year, the prices fell to Rs207.10, contrary to the rates announced by the State Bank of Pakistan. According to the central bank, the rupee finished the interbank market at 236.02 against the US dollar.
Some Twitter users also pointed out the search engine issue.
One Twitter user said, “Last night, the dollar crashed on Google.”
