Popular Times, the feature in Google Search and Maps that shows how busy a place typically is at different times of the week now gives a real-time look at how crowded a place is right now, to help you decide where and when to go. Whether you’re rushing to pick up a last minute gift or seeking a quiet cafe, check Popular Times for a sneak preview of what to expect when you arrive. If you’re playing host for the day, you can also check and see how long people typically stay at a given location. That way you can plan your itinerary to the minute.
We'd love you to help us learn when we're getting this right and when we're wrong, so we can be as accurate as possible and expand the live information to more of the places you care about. You can help by tapping the blue “Correct?” (see image below) link that appears with the live data on Google Search, and confirm whether the live data is too busy, too quiet, or just right.
Click "Correct?" to give feedback on whether this information is... correct.
