Google now helps you dodge crowds at your favorite places so you can be the worst

When you’re having a long, busy day, you’re often grasping for pockets of time to escape and do something right for you, like getting a quick coffee from the place by your work. But when you walk in at 3pm and you’re surrounded by 20 business suits who were all apparently pre-programmed to swarm the shop at the same time as you, it’s hard to not turn around and walk right out.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

Google Search understands that you hate people. So, in a blog post today, the company announced that it will now show you the busiest times of the week at millions of places on Google Search. Simply type in the name and location of the place you want to go, and Google will show you peak times at these places throughout the week.

So now you can avoid those business suits at the coffee shop. Or those meatheads at the gym. Or the sorority girls who crowd your favorite nail salon.
