Google Maps: With Black Friday to start days and Christmas in just a month, that time of year returns when the streets, shops and spaces are packed with people, especially when the children are given vacations at school. But we are still in the middle of a pandemic, and the cold has arrived, with which the Covid-19 is added to the flu season.

A duet that together with relaxation and the lifting of restrictions can cause a perfect storm between now and January.

Google Maps: Notice of street agglomeration

For this reason, and to help both prevent the bloody pandemic from lasting forever and avoid the stress of those crowds and crowds, Google Maps has launched an ideal tool: Area Busyness, a new function that you can use in Maps that combines trends live stream to help you instantly detect when a neighborhood or part of the city is close or busiest.

Let’s say you don’t like crowds: Well, you just have to open Google Maps to see the places you should avoid, like the area near a Christmas fair. Do you want more information? Click on a neighborhood to see its degree of occupancy at different times of the day, along with the restaurants, shops and entertainment venues (such as a museum) that are in it, so you can decide if you want to visit it.

And giving it another use, if you are traveling and want to know some of the most popular areas of the city, you can easily locate the liveliest neighborhoods.

The Area Busyness function has started to be available from now on for the Google Maps Android and iOS apps, and if you don’t see it right now, be patient, because its release will be staggered and not simultaneously globally.
