Google Now Helps You Find Events

Google Search will now help you find nearby events

Google makes it easier now on the Google app and mobile web but letting you search for events nearby.

If you've ever found yourself in a situation where you wanted to attend a rock concert but didn't know where to buy tickets from, or wanted to attend some fun event but didn't know where to look, Google has introduced a new feature that helps you look for such events taking place around you.

You can search for things such as "jazz concerts", "art events", and you'll get a special list filled with at-a-glance details about the upcoming events. For each search result, you will be able to see the event's organiser name, date & time, venue. Events can be filtered by location as well, so make sure you type "events near me" when searching for activities happening near to your location.

This means it will impact only the four major banks, as well as Macquarie Bank, and is expected to raise more than $6 billion. Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison claims the government's 2017 budget is founded on fairness, security and opportunity.

It sounds like a nifty feature and if you're an event planner who is trying to get their events listed on Google, you can check out these guidelines on how to go about doing so.

The user can tap a particular card to expand and view more details like the time, venue and a brief description of the same. Notably, the search results are not showing up on the desktop version, and only available on the Google app and mobile website, as we said. This feature is now rolled out in the United States and there is no word as yet on its global availability.

And then a list of options will appear, which includes the event's title, date, time and location. Once you find the event of your liking, you may buy tickets from the site directly. Hopefully, this useful tool rolls out to more people soon.
