Google has updated mobile search for Android and iPhone to condense location listings into one easy-to-find spot, strengthening some of its most used mobile search features as smartphone ownership continues to increase. The new update rolls out a summary view of a store or restaurant's hours, reviews, photos, and other details – just click on a business listing to see it all in one place.
