Not sure what to do with yourself this Easter? There’s plenty on, including Easter shows, art expos and concerts, and Google has made a change to its search process to make it easier to find things to do for you and your family.
Starting today, when you search on your phone for things like “events near me” or “free concert,” new features will give Aussies personal recommendations, along with more information about events that may interest you. Whether you’re in Sydney, Hobart or Darwin, you’ll find a list of events from a variety of sites, including Ticketmaster, Eventbrite, Timeout, Concrete Playground – and also key information about the event, right on Search.
To find out further information, just tap the event to get time, location and ticketing info. If you’re ready to go, book your tickets online using a range of providers, or you can head to the linked webpage for more event information.
With these new features, you can easily discover events based on your interests. While browsing events, you can tap the “For You” tab to get personalised ideas for things to do near you. You’ll also see trending and popular events in your area to keep you in the loop on the hottest happenings.
You’ll find events from across the web – from meetup and concert sites to individual event listings from organisations and brands you love. We’ve made it easy for sites to mark up their event listings to appear in this experience, with new listings updated quickly. Event sites can follow these guidelines to ensure events are discoverable.
