To see wait times for almost a million sit-down restaurants around the world that allow walk-ins, just search for the restaurant on Google, open the business listing, and scroll down to the Popular Times section.

You can either look up the current wait times, or tap on an hour of your choice to find the estimated wait for that time period. But unlike Google, NoWait also lets you put your name on the list for those restaurants that don't take reservations. In addition, Google will tell you how long people typically spend at the restaurant. Moreover, summaries of each day's wait times can be pulled up by scrolling through the results. It will then come to Google Maps to Android, at which point it will expand to include grocery stores, the company says.
