Have you ever wanted to find out what kind of events are around you or in a city that you’re about to visit? Sure, there are social media platforms such as Facebook that can list events, but it seems that Google wants in on the action as well. The company has recently updated its Google Search on mobile to add an Events section during your search.

According to Google, “Today on the Google app and mobile web in the U.S., 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. 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.”

Users will be able to sort and filter the events based on different time periods, such as searching for events taking place today, tomorrow, or even next week. This will allow users to plan ahead for when they are about to visit a new city or country and are looking for something to do when they get there.

It sounds like a nifty feature and if you’re an event planner who is trying to get their events listed on Google, you can check out these guidelines on how to go about doing so.
