Today, I will show you how do I convert float to string in golang, as mentioned above I’m going to use the Sprintf() method which is provided by the fmt package.

Let’s start our Golang convert float to string example

main.go

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"reflect"
)

func main() {
	b := 12.454
	fmt.Println(b)
	fmt.Println(reflect.TypeOf(b))

	s := fmt.Sprintf("%v", b)
	fmt.Println(s)
	fmt.Println(reflect.TypeOf(s))
}

In the above example, we have converted float value to a string and printed in golang console. let’s check the output.

Output

12.454
float64
12.454
string
