Zagat Lands Star Role In New Google+ Local

News updates all day from your Fast Company editors.

Long silent since Google bought it in September last year, ratings champ Zagat has resurfaced as part of Google’s newest limb, Google+ Local, a product that melds together the social spirit of ratings and check in apps. An icon to Google+ Local now appears at the bottom left hand corner of your Google+ page. It displays ratings for local restaurants and lets you check into and rate places using your Google+ account. Sensibly, Google+ Local fits right into other Google products–Zagat ratings and reviewer comments will show up on Google searches and Google Maps. As we predicted, Zagat has also landed a plum role in Google’s mobile plans–Google+ Local is now available as an app for Android.
