Google has announced a new feature in Google Search which reveals the busiest times for businesses and public places. According to the Verge, the new feature is already visible in the card for businesses listed in Search. The hope is the data will guide users away from long lines and toward times when a given store is less busy.
The users just have to type in the name and location of the place they want to go and Google will show them peak times at these places throughout the week. The features data is just an estimate like the traffic data. The system cannot tell exactly how many people are in line at a given store, just how many are in the store’s walls at a given time.
