Google has updated the behavior of its browser-based search tool for the iPhone and Android platforms. Users who perform searches from the Google.com site — using the Places feature — should notice that Google now lists the hours businesses are open in search results. It also allows users to filter results based what's open and what's not. Other improvements include the ability to filter by rating, and Google has added images of the businesses as well as reviews of those businesses from sites around the web. The new search features are already available. Google didn't say if it planned to bring these features to its dedicated Android and iPhone search application, or if it would offer these features to other platforms.
