Google revamps events in Search, adds new features
With summer in full swing, Google is making it easier for Android users to schedule their events in the calendar, as well as find them in Search. After adding new ways for users to look for events close to them, Google is now bringing new features meant to offer personal recommendations and info about interesting events.

For example, searching for “events near me” or “free concert” in the United States will bring up a list of events from various sites, along with details about the event. Both will be displayed in the Search window, but if you tap on the event, you will get an overview of things like time, location, ticketing providers and more in-depth info.

Moreover, the updated Search now allows users to discover events based on their interests. You can now tap on the “For You” tab to receive personalized ideas for various things that you can do near your location. Also, trending and popular events in your area will be visible in the Search as well.

The new features announced today will be rolled out gradually over the next few days, so be patient if you don't find them in Search right away.
