Google rolled out “Near me now” designed to easily “find out more about a place in your immediate vicinity, whether you're standing right in front of a business or if it's just a short walk away. By selecting “Explore right here” option, you can find out more about a place “right here” with just a few clicks.” And, “searching for popular categories of nearby places really simple. To search other categories of places not shown, ‘Browse more categories’ provides access to our local search product with more category choices.” “‘Near me now’ is currently available in US for iPhone (OS 3.x) or Android-powered devices with version 2.0.1 or later. You must first enable location, and ‘Explore right here’ works only if the phone provides location accuracy within approximately a city block.”
