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

For example, searching for San Francisco restaurant Michael Mina using a smartphone in Google (goog) search or Google Maps brings up a section titled "Popular times" below the usual restaurant reviews. This isn't for restaurants requiring reservations, but the walk-in restaurants.

Estimating the wait time for a table at a restaurant seems anything but a science. The feature will be deployed in Google Maps soon, too. Google predicts it will be able to offer these wait times for nearly a million restaurants worldwide when the update is completed. For now, Google is only talking about getting tables at restaurants, but a support page suggests that other business types, such as grocery stores, will be included in the future.

After typing a restaurant's name, access the Wait Times feature by opening the listing and clicking on the hour bars for more estimates. Moreover, summaries of each day's wait times can be pulled up by scrolling through the results. Yes, it's an opt-in feature, and yes, you've probably opted-in, because it makes Maps and Search a lot more useful. The instant insight into wait times is part of a growing trend since Yelp and Nowait partnered earlier this year to deliver similar information.
