Does Google Need Yelp Any More?

You might know that Google was on the verge of acquiring the popular local reviews website until recently when one of the two companies walked away from the discussions.

Today, Google has introduced a simple yet amazingly powerful ‘Near Me Now’ feature. Android and iPhone users who visit will now be shown this link at the bottom of the webpage. Clicking on this link will let you check out all the bars, restaurants, etc. in the vicinity.

The feature is presently only available inside the US and Google has not announced when it plans to introduce the feature for other countries.
