Google Places adds "open now" feature to help your next midnight binge

Alex T.

Google has been stepping up their game when it comes to the mobile version of their website lately. First they added fancy HTML5 weather with interactive features and now the Places tab under the Google mobile site gives you the option of finding places around you that are open at the time of search. More info past the break.


Other than being able to find that one pizza palce that's open at 4 AM, Google added pictures of the businesses it displays, easy access to user reviews and a more touch-friendly interface with bigger buttons so you can view a map of the location or call ahead. There are also filter options for user ratings and distance for your convenience:

The new feature is US-only for now, but it'll most likely make the round through your territory of choosing in the coming months.
