Google Search will now provide suggestions for local hotels

One of the handy and convenient features of Google is that it knows your searches based on your previous searches. It also knows what you’re up to based on emails you’ve received, which is why sometimes Google Now will display reminds for upcoming flights and so on. Some might think it’s creepy, but others find it useful. That being said, if you’re planning on going on a holiday and want to know good places around your hotel to eat or check out, Google has recently announced that they have made changes to Google Search where it will now take into consideration the hotel you are staying at and will be able to display more relevant search results.

If you are travelling this summer and you often use Google’s Search to find places to roam around and eat, then a newly-introduced feature might interest you. The search engine giant is now rolling out an update that will offer you details about places nearby your hotel. Google announced the news on its Google+ page and said, “Travelling this summer? If your hotel confirmation is in your Gmail, you can now ask Google for things to do, eat or see to do nearby without the fuss looking up where you’re staying.” The Mountain View giant clearly notes that for the feature to work, the user’s hotel confirmation mail should be in the Gmail. The company further added that users can use the Google Search app for voice command searches such as “Show me restaurants around my hotel” or “Give me directions to my hotel from here.” The Google+ post said, “Tap the mic on the Google app and say “Show me restaurants around my hotel” or “Give me directions to my hotel from here.” You’ll be finding your way around like a local in no time.” Unfortunately, the company has not revealed that whether the feature is being rolled out via an app update or will be available automatically to users after Tuesday. The Search app on the India-specific Google Play store was last updated on July 7. Earlier this month, the search giant updated its Search app for Android and iOS devices. The updated app indicated to users if a webpage would work properly on their mobile device or not.
