Ever been at a loose end, wondering what fun events are happening around you? Hear about that new play but can’t remember where to buy the tickets? Have trouble finding the right activity to do with your sister who has two toddlers? Now Google can help. Starting today on the Google app and mobile web in India, doing a search for events brings up a clear summary of activities from sites from across the web like BookMyShow.com, AllEvents.in, EventsHigh.com, 10times.com and more, that might be just what you’re looking for.
To try it, type in a quick search like, “food festivals in Mumbai,” or “dance performances in Delhi” on your phone. With a single tap, you’ll see at-a-glance details about various aspects, like the event title, date and time, and location. You can tap “more events” to see additional options. Once you find one that’s up your alley, tap it to find more details or buy tickets directly from the event website.
You can also look up events over different time periods: simply tap on filters like "today", "tomorrow", "next week" and more. And if you’re feeling open to more options, you can also try typing “events near me” to see what’s happening around the corner. After all, who knows what fun activities await?
