Google has added holiday hours support for Google Maps and Search apps. The new update highlights special holiday hours for stores and businesses listed on Google Maps and Search, as some stores and businesses have extended or reduced shopping hours during the holidays.
We’ve added holiday hours to Maps and Search, so when you search for a business and a major holiday is within the next seven days, you’ll see whether the business has a special holiday schedule. Not only will you avoid showing up to find the doors locked, but you’ll save time by not having to call the business or check the website for hours.
With this update on roll now, you will not have to drive all the way to your favorite restaurant just to see whether it’s open or not, or spend several hours figuring out the same.
If any store hasn’t specified holiday hours, then you will be treated with a warning message. The update is now available across all major platforms.
