Over the weekend Brian Barwig and @NortheasternExt both notified me on Twitter that Google is now showing a new feature in the Google Maps local listings for how long a person typically spends at a specific venue.

So if you want to get a coffee and you want to know how long the average time it takes, Google will show you based on their tracking data. Creepy but most of us know Google has been tracking this already.

Here are some screen shots of this in action:

This is under the "plan your visit" section and it says "people typically spend X minutes here" in that box. Sometimes it says a specific number and sometimes it shows a range.

Try searching for Starbucks yourself and see what comes up. To take 15 minutes to get coffee, seems too long?
