Google Adds Restaurants' Busiest Times to Search Results
on 31 July 2015
Many popular eateries refuse to quote wait times over the phone, making it difficult to decide if the trip is worth it. Luckily, Google is taking some of the guessing out of restaurants' wait times by adding a new feature to their search function. After googling the restaurant in question, a neat blue graph pops up charting out the businesses’ busiest hours and the best and worst times to visit. The benefit of this new feature over specialized apps is the sheer reach of Google. The tech giant is able to gather massive amounts of data from Google Maps users to produce highly accurate information.
