In addition to the Google Maps functionality that shows peak times from the average time collected through anonymous data, Google has announced that the service is now able to provide real-time information about an establishment?s popularity.
With the Black Friday period, which is expected to take thousands of people to stores due to the lower prices, it requires Google to present more relevant and faster data. In this way, customers can now view the situation in real time and avoid the most tumultuous places.
?Since last year, you have been able to see how busy a place is at different times of the week. In time for Black Friday swarms, we?re adding a real-time look at how crowded a place is, to help you decide where and when to go, ?published Google.
Another novelty is the possibility of checking the time that people normally spend in a given location, making it possible to plan the trip to different locations during a trip.
