Google launches hotel and restaurant search on Android

Posted Apr 26, 2014

Google has integrated hotel and restaurant search into the Google Search app for Android. This means that you can say a query like “show me hotels in Royal Oak, Michigan” and the search results page will show a list of hotels in that area. You can search for queries like “show me restaurants in Austin, Texas” to find restaurants there.

In terms of the restaurant search, you can ask for specific cuisines or price-related options. For example, you can ask for cheap or expensive restaurants and filter them by ratings. Google will show you if the restaurant is open or not as well.

This should make last-minute reservations easier for users.
