Google redesigns event recommendations in mobile search

Google is constantly adding little touches to enhance its user experience. For instance, that info card that pops up whenever you search for a famous person gives you quick access to stats like their birthday/age, their height, a quick blurb about what he/she is known for, and more. However, the Mountain View-based company hadn't implemented one for event searches - until now.

If you don't happen to find yourself in one of the dozen countries that have either already seen a launch or at least have an official promise of one coming soon, you might be interested to know that Google has at least set its sights on a few other countries. Text in the latest update of the Android Pay app hints at four previously unannounced markets. There are also obvious signs Google is merging the recently closed Hands Free experiment into Android Pay and expanding it significantly.
