Business Hours with Location Extensions

I’ve got good news for those of us who are fans of Location Extensions! In an attempt to help users plan their visits to businesses, desktop Location Extensions now includes advertiser business hours. The feature will also display Google My Business special hours to accommodate holidays and other exception hours.

@Benoit, usually there is a mention of particular countries when a feature is restricted. There was no mention on this information however so I'm assuming it's available to everyone...

 

Stay tuned though, I'll try to find out.

That's very cool. I am not seeing signs of options for this in my accounts yet, but looking forward to this improvement. That's great that you don't get charged for the clicks on the hours pull-down. It would almost be better if it just said "Open Now" like it does in the Knowledge graph though (and you can click to see the hours).

@Shanee_Kirk, I wish I could say it's skill related! In reality I believe it's because of the "teaser" post I left in the GPC. Plus it's fairly good news right? Smiley Very Happy
