Google Search will soon show restaurant wait times

08 November, 2017, 01:05 | Author: Randy Kelley

And while businesses in general have been supported for awhile to show wait times within Google Search, restaurants have been missing up until now. Now you can decide whether that cronut is really worth an hour wait or plan ahead to get your fix at a time when you can avoid a wait entirely. To alleviate this, Google has announced that both Search and Maps will soon feature wait times for hundreds of thousands of sit-down restaurants, enabling you to plan your meals ahead.

The data has been aggregated from historical anonymised data, making it fairly accurate but it's not a 100% guarantee. By scrolling, you can also see how wait times vary on a day-to-day and hour-by-hour basis. This anonymized data is taken from people who agree to be tracked via the Google Location History feature that the company uses to target people with better recommendations based on places they have visited. In addition, Google will tell you how long people typically spend at the restaurant. The instant insight into wait times is part of a growing trend since Yelp and Nowait partnered earlier this year to deliver similar information. Now though, in a development we can't believe didn't happen sooner, Google will show you the wait times of almost a million sit-down restaurants around the world.
