Google Search makes finding a place to eat even easier with convenient filter options


Google Search update restaurants

There are few things in this world as convenient as Google Search. Hitting Search apps today (US-only) is a new way to search for nearby eateries by voice. Simply speak the command, “Show me restaurants in…” whichever location you’re currently in, and seconds later Google will show you results for restaurants nearby. Especially handy should you ever find yourself traveling to a new city.

The real goods are Google’s new filter options, making it painfully easy to tailor search results according to price range, ratings, hours of operation, or the type of cuisine you’re in the mood for. The best part? When you find a restaurant worth visiting, simply follow up with, “Ok Google, call ___” and watch as your Android smartphone magically begins calling — completely hands-free. Life is good.
