The Google Mobile team announced a new feature in local search that factors in the hours a business is open. Over the past year, Google has added a sidebar full of options for searching what's near you or other various options to narrow down your search options. Now they're bringing it to mobile search, too.

Searching on mobile devices is all about convenience. Google added location to its default search, both in the browser and in the mobile search apps for Android and iOS.

Now, using Google Places on your mobile device, Google will show you a link to show only places that are currently open for business. The information is pulled from businesses that have supplied hours in their Google Places for Business accounts.

To try it out for yourself, go to Google.com in your browser and click the link for Places or use either the Maps or Places app on your mobile phone.
