Google could release new search function to connect you with tradesmen

Google rumored to be working on a new search feature that would link you to plumbers, electricians, and more

The next evolution of Google's search functionality could see users hooked up with easier access to local electricians, plumbers and the like. Not only that, but scheduling appointments could eventually get easier.




The Wall Street Journal has unnamed sources providing it with the news, where they have reported: "Google is planning a service to connect users with plumbers, electricians, roofers and other home-service providers, according to two people familiar with the matter. One of the people familiar with the matter said service providers would be able to upload their schedules to Google, where searchers could sign up for an appointment".


The biggest hurdle here is securing local service providers, as unlike airlines and car insurance companies, more local services operate on a much smaller scale. The challenge here for Mountain View is getting enough of these local providers to sign up for the new service, where it could offer it on a national scale.
