Unless my eyes deceive, Google has tweaked their mobile landing page with the addition of Places icons below the search dialog. When clicked you will jump to a search for nearby businesses based on your location, meaning for the feature to work you will need location enabled in your Google Mobile settings. Restaurants, cafes, and bars are the three icons shown on the homepage, with an option to click through to see the entire list. We were alerted to the change via the above image showing Google’s German mobile site, but have been able to confirm that the US version is showing the same changes. Anyone else notice the new additions to Google’s site when accessed on your Android phone?
