Google search results will cure your boredom with a local events calendar

Google Search for Events Gets Overhauled

Google Search is adding a new feature today that will easily guide you towards events nearby if you use it on your phone.

The search giant will tap into information contained on sites like Eventbrite and Meet-up to deliver detailed snippets about events in search results.

Searchers can specify both their location as well as a type of event they're interested in, such as Google's own examples of "jazz concerts in Austin" or "art events this weekend".

In the updated search experience, you'll be able to see the details about each event at glance - like its title, date, time, and location. "More events" option is also available which will lead you to an expanded list of suggestions. If you like something, click on the item to open more info or to quickly buy tickets. If you want to go the opposite route and have everything thrown at you, just search for "events near me" and you'll be shown all the different options.

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.

Always Dreaming wins 143rd Kentucky Derby
Some have not only their favorite picked out at Will Rogers Downs but also who they're rooting for in the 143rd Kentucky Derby. For a few moments, it seemed as though everyone forgot that the race was going on in Louisville and not Plains Township.

"Hear about an incredible event but can't remember where to buy the tickets?" Events is beginning to rollout today on the Google app for iOS and Android, as well as the mobile website in the United States.

This works on mobile search and in the Google mobile app.

The firm has also invited event creators to check out their developer guidelines in order to make sure people see their listings. The list will expand over time.

While the new feature might not compare to Facebook's practically sentient events features that can suggest events based on your interests and your friends' activity, there's definitely still a lot of value in this straightforward and localized list Google is presenting us with.
