Google to Estimate Wait Times for Local Restaurants
08 November, 2017, 02:01 | Author: Grady King
For the past two years, Google has offered a Popular Times feature that uses historical location-based data garnered from people's phones to determine when particular businesses, such as gyms and museums, are likely to be at their busiest or quietest.
To see wait times, search a restaurant on Google, and scroll down to the Popular Times section of the page, which will show the estimated wait time at that moment.
Of course, wait times aren't just an issue at fine dining establishments.
For a while now, Google Search has displayed a "popular times" widget for various businesses which could give a vague idea of whether you'd have to wait for a table at a restaurant, or if that one bar will be so crowded you won't be able to breathe. But unlike Google, NoWait also lets you put your name on the list for those restaurants that don't take reservations. Users will also be able to click on a specific time to get estimated wait times for that period. When they're ready to launch on Google Maps and Android, Google also promises to expand the function to include grocery-store listings. In addition, Google will tell you how long people typically spend at the restaurant. Google is adding new detail with information about actual wait times and projected wait times to help hungry consumers plan their visits for a bite to eat.
