Hungry? Google can now tell you the wait time at restaurants, grocery stores

Google Will Now Tell You How Long the Wait Is at Your Favorite Restaurant

Google revealed today that Maps and Search will soon tell you wait times at sit-down restaurants around the world. Their latest feature will be showing you wait times at restaurants. This isn't for restaurants requiring reservations, but the walk-in restaurants.

The wait times will be granular as well, you can see the current wait times, or if you want to visit later you can get an estimate of how long the wait time will be at that time.

Google says that this feature will soon launch for both Search and Maps, so it sounds like there's a little bit of a wait left (which is kind of ironic given the subject matter of this update). In addition, Google will tell you how long people typically spend at the restaurant.

Wait times are calculated based on "anonymized historical data" pulled from Google users who have opted into Google's (somewhat creepy) smartphone location history program. For example, back in summer 2015, it began to show mobile web users which days of the week and time of day were the busiest for local businesses using charts that appear in the business listing.

In order to see the new estimated wait times, you'll simply tap on the hour bars in the Popular Times section, as can be seen in the image above.
