Google Maps will now warn you if a store you navigate to closes before you arrive
After Apple’s clear statement about heavy investments in their mapping business Google started to release new features to its maps app every couple of days. The new update uses Google’s database of businesses opening hours and warn users if they’re driving to a place that will be closed when they arrive.
When you enter the address of your destination in the app, you’ll see a message: “Your destination may be closed by the time you arrive” as well as the opening times for the venue and an estimated arrival time. The update will be available for Android only for now.
It’s probably on of the most useful features we’ve seen for a while. It finally uses all Google’s data resources outside maps to give some value added information which would be difficult to find directly in the app.
