When you’re looking for something to do, it can be tough to decide which spots are really worth your time. Google wants to make the decision process easier with a new Google Search feature.
Starting today, Google Search users in the U.S. will see you reviews from top critics and best-of lists when you search for the best places to eat and drink. For example, when searching for “Chinese restaurant,” you may see the New York City restaurant RedFarm along with links to top reviews and any best-of lists that it’s on.
Because there are so many websites and apps for reviews, it can be tough to wade through reviews and lists when you’re searching for the perfect spot for meals or drinks. That’s especially true if you’re visiting a city that you’ve never been to before. Google Search’s new feature should help to eliminate that hassle.
That’s not the only trick that Google Search is gaining. For some locations, it’ll also show you how long visitors typically stay at a spot, so you know whether or not you can fit a trip there into your schedule.
