Google can now tell you how to beat the queues in your favourite cafés

Finally, FINALLY.

GOOGLE HAVE UNVEILED a very cool new feature indeed. In a Google+ post yesterday, the tech giant announced a new way to make your life considerably easier.

If you’re not one who likes to wait around in queues, you can now Google the café you’re planning to head to in order to see how busy it is.

Take Brother Hubbard, on Capel Street in Dublin.


Google will now show you the peak times underneath the information in a new feature called Location Cards.

You can plan which cafés to visit and which to avoid if you’re in a rush. Perfection. It’s all down to tracking the historical visits to certain cafés in Ireland using information on reviews and comments collected for each place.

The service is still in the roll out stage, but once the process is complete, you’ll never wait in line for a coffee again.
