Google adds events listing to Maps on Android

Google Maps received an update on Android today that patches a few bugs and adds a new feature that should help you find something fun to do this weekend. The improved app now offers information on upcoming events and performances when you search for a specific venue, pulling them from the Internet when available. 

Google wants to make sure that dance card of yours stays full. Rather than just showing you the best way to get to a new hot spot in town, today’s Maps update for Android tells you what events are coming up there as well.

No matter what you’re into, it should make planning your next night out that much easier.
