Users can take advantage of this new feature by choosing their favorite restaurant in the map or search. The estimated waiting time is shown in the expanded business list in the "Top Times" section. In addition, the new features highlight the busiest hours of the day and the approximate amount of time people wait in line. Google said waiting time estimates are based on anonymous historical data.
This new feature marks Google's latest effort to make its products more useful in the real world. Earlier, the company updated its map to show available parking spaces and nearby Uber drivers.
