Additionally, it's also possible to look up events over different time periods, by applying filters like "today", "tomorrow", "next week." Even more, just type "events near me" to see what's happening around the corner.

To try it, after typing in a query, for example "jazz concerts in Austin," or "art events this weekend," a single tap will show you at-a-glance details like event title, date and time, and location. And, with a tap on "more events," you can see additional options. Once you find, just tap it to find more details or buy tickets directly from the website.
