Google Maps gets one step closer to omniscience, adds live place busyness, average stay times, more detailed … – Android Police

Back in 2015, Google introduced a featured in Google Search that showed you when a retailer, bar, restaurant, or other location was the most popular. The Popular Times section in the place’s listing featured a graph that let you see at what time might be best to visit to avoid crowds. Today, Google is upgrading this feature with a real-time representation of how popular a place is at the moment.

Key Takeaways:

  • The feature will allow you to see an estimate of how busy a business or point of interest is right now, which, let’s just stop and think about how completely insane the future is for a minute.
  • Anyway, the rather awesome technology on display here aside, Google has announced two other features regarding places.
  • The third feature now allows places to have separate hours for individual sub-places under a single place card.
