Lets You Ask About Things Nearby Without Naming Them- Google’s “Location Aware Search”

Google has made live a new feature called ‘Location Aware Search’ on the Google Search app that will let you ask about places and things in your proximity without naming them. The contextual search service will take into account your location, search history and give you tailored results about landmarks, locations and businesses around you.

The feature has not been announced officially by Google yet, but Search Engine Land founder Danny Sullivan reports that it is live for all versions of Android and even iOS users.

Even a few Reddit users confirmed that the service works for them. It is important to note that this is not Now On Tap, which was announced at last month’s I/O as an Android M feature but just an additional new feature of Google Search, and works for only locations in proximity.

All you need to do is get your location settings on, and ask Google Search questions like ‘Which place am I at?’ Google will understand the context, pull out your location using GPS and give you the appropriate answer. Similarly you can ask search questions like:

1. What is this museum?

2. When does this restaurant open?

3. How tall is this? (when standing next to a tower)

4. When was this built? (for monuments)

5. What’s the name of this church?

6. What’s the phone number for this pharmacy?
