Man Taking Photo Of Food In Restarunt

Google announced it upgraded the Google Search Generative Experience experiment to now also bring in reviews and photos from not just the web but also from Google Business Profiles. This makes Google SGE better at helping you plan trips, travel, restaurants and so on.

Google wrote, that they have "added new capabilities to SGE for local and travel searches, so if you ask detailed questions about a place or destination in Search, you’ll see an AI-powered snapshot that brings together the most helpful information available — not only from across the web, but also from the reviews, photos and Business Profile details that people have submitted to Google for more than 200 million places in the real world. And with all these links and resources right at your fingertips, it’s easy to dive deeper on relevant sites and hear perspectives from a wide range of creators." Yea, that is a long sentence...

Here is how it looks:
