Google now tells users how busy a place is in real-time

Just in time for the holiday season, Google launched a new update for its Popular Times feature in Google Search to help users navigate their way in crowded places.

According to Google’s blog post, users will now be able to know if a certain place is crowded on a real-time basis, adding to the already existing feature that lets users identify how busy a place is at any day of the week. Google says that this new feature will help users decide where and when to go.

In addition, Google announced that users will now be able to see how long people typically stay at a certain location while another update will show users service hours of different stores and restaurants.
