Nobody likes a crowd, especially with COVID-19 still lurking around and causing havoc wherever it goes. Fortunately for people who want to stay as far away from people as they possibly can, Google Maps is rolling out some new features to help stay away from them.
Google Maps is updating its ‘Busyness’ feature to help you avoid certain locations when they’re at their busiest. The app is also expanding its integrated curbside pickup feature, meaning you can also avoid people no matter how crowded a store is.
For those that don’t know, Google is able to keep a running tally on how many people are in a specific location at that moment. The figures aren’t always exact, but a mix of real-time and historical data means you can get a good idea of how crowded a place will be.
