Google Maps on iOS brings more transit details and restaurant wait times

22 March 2018

The new feature arrived with version 4.47, bringing it in line with the Android version. A couple of new features are included in this release, such as more transit details as well as a very handy feature which shows wait times for more than a million sit-down restaurants across the globe.

Rather than highlighting the intersection where an underground train entrance is and expecting you to find it, Google Maps will tell you exactly which entrance you need to go into to take the correct train.

The update also makes it easier to search and sort through reviews based on various factors. It was spotted in the app changelog, and mentioned it is available in Delhi, New York, Hong Kong, Taipei, Paris, Los Angeles, Moscow, Singapore, Madrid, Barcelona, Kiev, and Budapest, and more cities due to be added.

Youll also be able to find more helpful reviews within Google Maps.

The feature is shown under the "Popular times" area (which debuted last fall), and if available for a restaurant, you will now see an hourglass icon that shows "Wait" and an estimated time.
