There seems to be a new widget being tested by Google that allows users to check their internet speed directly in the search results.
There is a screen shot that Dr. Pete Meyers shared via a tweet that shows a Google search for “check internet speed.” In return, the internet speed test widget came back with a “Run Speed Test” button.
Looks like Google is testing their own internet speed test (query = “check internet speed”) – not seeing it live — pic.twitter.com/wjsPIlEbFv

Google’s internet speed widget, which is being powered by Measurement Labs, appears to be in test mode. It doesn’t appear for all users that enter the “check internet speed” search query. As of this writing, I tried using the search term in Google, and didn’t get the button.
