  • Google Search will now help you find nearby events

Google doesn't want you to use a separate app or scour the depths of the internet to find something interesting to do. "Today on the Google app and mobile web in the USA, doing a search for events brings up a clear summary of activities from sites from across the web like Eventbrite, Meetup and more, that might be just what you're looking for", Google said in a blog post.

If you are the adventurous type, you can type "events near me" and get a general glance of what is going on around you. You'll see variety of options, including an extended event calendar and tabs for the different days of the week. If you want even more information, you can tap "more events, " and everything will be shown to you.

As you can see, you can filter the events afterwards by today, tomorrow, this week, etc. Google has not officially allied with any of the event sites, and is also not taking commission from the ticket sellers.

'Looking for something fun to do nearby tonight? If the user needs only the events closer to his area, then he can search for shows near him. The list will expand over time. Events is beginning to rollout today on the Google app for iOS and Android, as well as the mobile website in the United States. Plans for global expansion have not been revealed yet. We can also check for the events occurring in next week too.

Google will always be the top search engine. Hopefully, this useful tool rolls out to more people soon.

Why this matters: We use Google for just about everything, but unless it's a major event, it's not always the best way to find something to do in our neighborhood.
