Google Hotpot now Integrated with Google Places

Google Hotpot | PlacesGoogle Hotpot - the once stand-alone product would become an integrated part of Google Places.

Some five months ago Google launch Hotpot as a recommendation engine for places which attracted millions of users who rate and review venues as well as adding friends to get personalized recommendations. Adding a more personal touch and view of the world, Google released Hotpot both for iPhone and Android apps encouraging more users to recommend, rate and review places. Hotpot also expanded to support more than 47 languages.

Hotpot project manager Lior Ron once wrote on the Official Google Blog, “Hotpot is really going places: to a Google search box near you and around the world.”.

Few days ago, last April 08 2011 on the official Google blog, Hotpot project manager Lior Ron writes, "Based on this success, we’ve decided to graduate Hotpot to be a permanent part of our core local product offering, Google Places."

Google Hotpot now integrated with Google Places, Hotpot - the dish, that describes a shared eating experience will now graduate. Though the Hotpot product name will be discontinued the technology will be embodied and be part of Google Places. Both web and Google mobile apps users can expect more “Hotpotness” in Google Places, they will have more big plans and will be adding more features to Google Places in order to make it easier to rate, discover and share the places.

"Rolling Hotpot into Google Places helps simplify the connection between the places that are rated and reviewed and the more than 50 million places that already have an online presence through Google Places—places that millions of people search for and find every day on Google," project manager Lior Ron explained.
