We’ve all made that mistake of rallying our friends to some hot, new no-reservations restaurant at 5 p.m.only to find it empty. Or we’ve casually headed to a favorite place on a Wednesday night only to find it unexpectedly packed. Earlier this year, Google launched a feature called Popular Times, which showed predictions of how busy a restaurant might be each hour of the day when you scoped it on Google services. Now, the company has updated the feature in a big way: Popular Times now shows how crowded places are in real timeat the very moment you search.
