Google's New Feature Will Help You Avoid Other Humans

People? Yuck.

What happens when you carefully research a hot new walk-in-only restaurant, make big plans to go, then find it's completely packed when you get there?

Google has a solution for you. The company on Tuesday announced a new Search feature that lets mobile users see when a destination will be most popular.

The information, displayed in a bar graph, is based on "aggregated and anonymous data from mobile devices that have location history enabled," according to a spokesperson for Google.

It will be available internationally on both Android and iOS, but it's still rolling out, so it may not be available to everyone yet. 

This feature joins a myriad of new functions that the tech company has introduced to mobile devices this year. One lets you visualize all the places you've visited; another warns you if your destination may be closed upon your arrival.
