Google Brings Hotel and Restaurant Filters to Google Search on Android Devices

Today, Google has baked a bit more of its Zagat purchase into mobile Google Search results, allowing searchers to use a new filter tool when looking for restaurants or hotels in their city. Starting now, if you say “show me some hotels in San Francisco,” you will get your same list of results, but with the new filter button added in, that allows you to filter the results by date, hotel class, user ratings, and more. 

The same goes for restaurants, too. If you search “show me some restaurants in San Francisco,” you will undoubtedly see a huge list of many different types of places to eat. Now, you can filter through price, user ratings, type of cuisine, and more thanks to the update.

This feature is automatically placed in search results, so there is no update needed for the Google Search app. For now, this is limited to the US only, but Google will look to roll it out to more countries soon.

Go check it out.

    I’m debating turning Google Now back on. Ive had it off for awhile because it viciously rapes battery.

    This is pretty awesome. Hopefully they can get the filtering granularity down to the level of hotels.com & KAYAK.

      The filters are getting better, been using it to find restaurants for a while now and now they are showing you which restaurants are closed now, it never used too, been doing it for the past 6 months. But they are pretty slow on finding brand new restaurants that have opened up that are close to you.

      I wish they would add a filter for who delivers by you, not great results here and grubhub sucks for st.louis
