Now It’s been a long week for Google and Facebook, and now it’s finally time for the search giant to take the spotlight.
On Wednesday, the tech giant officially launched the company stores locator in a move that will give its online customers a way to find the closest store.
The company’s search feature, which was introduced in October, lets users search for stores near them and then check to see if the stores are still available, as well as compare price tags and reviews from consumers.
The system, which can be accessed by clicking the Google+ icon on the home screen, allows users to compare prices and reviews across multiple stores.
The new search feature is currently available in several US cities, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Dallas.
The company says it is adding more cities in the coming weeks, and it will also soon expand the feature to New York City and Los Angeles.
Google’s move is a significant expansion of its search technology in a way that was not previously possible.
Earlier this year, Facebook began offering the same search functionality in Australia and New Zealand, where the company currently has a market share of more than 50% in the local retailing space.
In recent months, Facebook has been focusing on making the search experience more interactive.
In October, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg launched a redesigned and revamped search experience that includes a “search bar” that will allow users to “click around” to find what they are looking for, rather than having to click and drag through menus.
While it’s not clear if Google’s move to store locations will result in the same improvements in the search process that Facebook is making, the search technology has certainly benefited from having access to a wider pool of information.
