On May 10th, 2017, Google updated their app and mobile website to enhance the user experience and interactivity. This new feature will enable users to look up events and activities that are happening near their location.
This may sound a bit familiar to Facebook users, seeing as the social media site has been offering a public events space page for quite some time now. Facebook users are able to discover events near them and RSVP to keep track of their events.
How it Works
Once the user searches for an event on Google, a drop down box will appear with an organized list of nearby, local events. Google will pull events from other applications, such as Meetup and EventBrite. Additionally, Google will allow individuals to add their events to the listings, so long as they follow the guidelines.
This new feature on Google is now available to users in the United States.
