For those of you who always wondered why Hotpot was a separate service from Places, wonder no more. Google has finally taken the steps to combine Hotpot with their check-in based Google Places. The system for you to recommend, rate and review places is now integrated with the app that you use to check into it. We wonder what took them so long, maybe they were testing out the Hotpot system for any kinks before they combined the two services, but as they say “it’s better late than never.” Start enjoying Hotpot features from within Google Places now.
