Yesterday saw the launch of Local Event Search, a new feature for the Google app and mobile website that provides users with a detailed list of local events sourced from a collection of sites such as Eventbrite and Meetup, as revealed by Google in a post on the company’s official blog.
‘To try it, type in a quick search like, “jazz concerts in Austin,” or “art events this weekend” on your phone. With a single tap, you’ll see at-a-glance details about various options, like the event title, date and time, and location. You can tap “more events” to see additional options. Once you find one that’s up your alley, tap it to find more details or buy tickets directly from the website,’ states the blog post.
Local Event Search is currently available for US users only but it’s likely Google will soon expand availability to other regions.
