Google Maps for iOS Now Shows Average Restaurant Wait Times

Google Maps for iOS has been updated to now bring estimated restaurant wait times, to help you plan your eating out adventures a bit better.

The feature is shown under the ‘Popular times’ area (which debuted last fall), and if available for a restaurant, you will now see an hourglass icon that shows ‘Wait’ and an estimated time.

In our screenshot below, you can see it in action for The Keg (it wasn’t available for Jam Cafe, which is notorious for long lines):

You can also swipe to another day and tap on any hour to see estimated average wait times. Google says this new ‘wait’ feature is available for over a million restaurants worldwide and it looks to include locations in Canada.

The update also says you can now search and sort through reviews of a place as well, to help you decide on where to eat (won’t matter because most reviews are ‘fake news’ anyways).
